is there a way to "rip" a movie you rented?

Oh I am sure there are screen capture utilities that can scrape video as it plays--including iTunes rented movies. But I can't see why: just rent the DVD if you plan on ripping. Easier, better quality. (I do it so I can time-shift my rentals.)

When I rent a movie through iTunes, how long do I have to watch it? And if I begin watching it and fall asleep and it continues to run to the end, can I still go back and rewatch it within a certain time?

You have 30 days from the time of rental to watch your movie, and 24 hours (in the US) or 48 hours (elsewhere) after you've started viewing to finish it. Once the rental period expires, the movie will disappear from your iTunes library.

Once you start watching your movie, you can view the rented movie as many times as you wish within the 24-hour (or 48-hour) window.
