Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

CNet writes about Princeton Ph.D. student John Halderman and his paper explaining how to disable BMG's new CD copy protection, which is as simple as holding down the Shift key. CNet does not link directly to the paper, but you can view it here. Holding down the Shift key bypasses the Autorun feature of the CD, allowing the music to be copied. Apparently this annoyance is supposed to discourage CD-ripping. Somehow, I don't think it will.
