I found Cinecopia on my Google ads. Interesting business model. In business since "early 2004". It is a Netflix alternative which requires you to contribute your own discs for trading with other subscribers. Charges $1.50 per trade. Provides the pre-paid disc mailers. No warehouses or distribution centers because members do all the work. They provide the searchable database, but you enter the movies into it. Similar to Peerflix, except Cinecopia doesn't require you to maintain a queue, and you're limited to 10 out. I like that they are located in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, where all the brainiacs live and work.
