Anecdotal Rental Research

C. and I have very limited experience with renting DVDs (or, indeed, movies in general regardless of format). I've rented a few times before from local shops in Noho, MA, and in Toronto. Yesterday (or the day before?), we tried renting from Amazon.co.uk. The first DVD arrived today, and it quickly became apparently that it was scratched all over. We limped through Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow.

The rental market seems a likely place to accumulate damaged discs. Were we unlucky or does this happen often in the rental market?
