    Default Licence needed for online rental business?.

    Hello everyone. I'm starting to research about the possibility of opening a website for renting games online and sending them through mail. My biggest question is about weather I need a licence for renting the games or not? It says on the discs that renting and selling is not allowed. I must say I'm from Romania and this business idea is for Romania. I'm currently living in UK and I was thinking this will work in Romania because there is no online rental websites for games. Thank you!

    Sergiu.

    So why are you going to do it anyway?

    Romania is part of the European Union and part of all Trademark, Patent, and Copyright treaties with the rest of the free world. So you'll likely get in just as much trouble violating other people's copy write for personal gain there as you would in the UK.

    There's a reason there is no online rental website for games.

    Also, who still rents game disks? You can go straight to the source and download games from Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo and every PC game maker. Buying and renting disks is ending faster than DVD rentals at Blockbuster. It's over.

    So how come do websites like Rent or Buy Games Online - cheap Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, Wii, DS, PSP & PS2 games rental UK, rent games even if it says that on the discs? And they are perfectly legal. If you don't have a proper answer to my question please leave it for others that have. I'm here to ask what to do to make it legal like other websites do. That doesn't mean I will make it anyway.

    Reseller relationships with the game companies. Same as Netflix has deals with movie studios. Simple as that. If they allow you to do it, they're getting a cut.
    I think we have a game store guy on the forum. Maybe he'll see this and chime in.
