Anyone know anything about this? I ran across it last night- never heard of it.

Never heard of this before, cool idea though..but I wonder when the MPAA is going to come knocking.

As far as I can see, this is legal. You are "selling" and "buying" your DVDs and peerflix.com is getting a commission (not unlike eBay) for being the middleman.

The MPAA might complain, but unless they personalize DVD licenses, they don't have a leg to stand on. As of today, I'd say this is competition for Netflix more than anything else.
