I don't think it's possible to rent GPL software. The requirement that
you stop using it after a certain date or if you stop paying would be an

You could offer short periods of support or warrantee on a "rent like"
monthly-installment basis, and market it as rent.

Sure, but you couldn't exclude those who don't pay the "rent" from starting or continuing to use the software.
