You might want to look at the recent Supreme Court ruling in Grokster v. MGM.  I'm sure there is commentary about the case all over the web.

2.  The songs on the disk may not be rented because first sale under 17 USC 109 does not apply to renting of phonorecords and software for commercial advantage.

I think this argument should carry the day, but recent research I conducted didn't reveal any cases on point.  I'm eager to argue this one myself.
