I don't know that there are ordinances on prepared food at room temperature when you start talking about 4 hours. There might be. But, that does not invalidate my point. 4 hours under the warmer, and 20 minutes outside of the warmer will still give you extremely unpleasantness food that does not violate any guarantee from the restaurant while still posing no health risks.

No. it wouldn't. There are no health codes that require food be hot. The only health codes concerning heating food is that some places require certian foods to be brought up to a certain temperature before serving. They do not require that they remain that temperature. So, you can't server raw chicken, but you can server chicken that has been cooked, refrigerated, and then served. Look at any 'Chef Salad' as an example.

NETflix, as in pick your movies over the 'net' and Netflix will mail them to you. Unless you know something about mandatory licensing that the rest of us don't, there is nothing patently absurd about the fact that streaming is a dead end. Netflix is 100% at the mercy of the copyrright holders. Copyright holders have never been known for being reasonable.

The 'rental disc' racket was broken decades ago. You do not have to have a special copy for renting. So, yes. You can go to Walmart, buy a DVD and rent it to people. Distributors are not require to sell to Netflix, but they also can't stop Netflix from going to Walmart and buying a disk to rent.

Netflix isn't fighting back. They are picking a different fight that they think they can win. Netflix used to be a service that allowed you to rent MOVIES by mail. Their original content, tactic is a service that lets you watch TV SHOWS streaming. The two have only a cursory relation to each other.

The service of offering MOVIES for rent is turning out to be a complete failure on the streaming side, and people are lamenting the fact that Redbox is quickly become the best we can hope for when it comes to renting MOVIES.

I like Redbox for what it is, but it is less than what Netflix was before Netflix abandoned the market.
