This can't be a new practice. Although we participate in interlibrary
"loan" of videos, not "rent", I believe the Educational Film and Video
Locator, which had been around forever, listed consortiums through which
you could acquire films and videos through both loans and rentals. I
assume since the institutions involved (mostly Universities) keep abreast
of the state of copyright law, that they were operating legally, and still
are.
