You could just go buy an ink refill kit and refill existing cartridges
Unless you have something like an Lexmark Z1300 which contains a chip on the ink cartidge that tracks the ink level, you can refill it all you want but it won't recognize the ink unless you figure out some way to reset the chip.
I got the printer for around $25 bucks so I certainly got what I paid for, I think I'll be going with a Canon next time.
Couldn't they just make bulk orders through a distributor such as Ingram Micro? Or is Ingram Micro being prohibited from selling to Redbox?
That's exactly what they did.
But... what happened now is that these studios (Fox, Universal and Warner Bros.) told not just the distributors (Ingram and Video Product Distribution) but also retailers like Best Buy and Wal-Mart to not sell to Redbox. That's restraint of trade. The studios have every right not to sell videos to whomever they want -- but those distributors and retailers can then sell to whomever they want. The studios should have no say in the downstream sales of the videos once they've been sold to the distributor, wholesaler or retailer. That's where the antitrust issue is. The studios are successfully controlling downstream sales.

The Right Stuff by Tom Wolfe is an excellent book about the early days of the Mercury program. The first astronauts were test pilots but they felt the Mercury program made them glorified monkeys sitting in a can. The flight of the rocket was computer controlled and they were only along for the ride, test pilots were on the bleeding edge of flight where they had control.
When Chuck Yeager was trying to beat the previous speed record of Mach 2 he managed to get to Mach 2.44 then lost aerodynamic control at 80,000ft, the airplane tumbled down 51,000ft in 51 seconds before he was able to regain control. He managed to land the plane safely.
