I got an email response as well.
Basically, all of the money they make in a month by renting out game X is divided among all of the people who have given them a copy of game X to rent out. I assume they take whatever chunk for themselves as well, though that wasn't mentioned.
So, if your copy of Fattie in Wonderland is out for 30 days and accrues, say, 15 dollars, getting beaten up by some kid who stores his game discs inside of peanut butter sandwiches, while my copy is sitting in their "warehouse" or the owner's basement or whatever, we would BOTH earn 7.50 (assuming we were the only two copies of F.I.W. that huddle had received).
That's seems pretty lame to me.
