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

More on the SunnComm Technologies' "lawsuit" against a Princeton grad student who broke their feeble attempt at copy-protection, and then proceeded to post his findings online. The company has no case (even when invoking specific articles of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act which forbid "circumventing" copy-protection technology), so they have dropped their challenge. Said Princeton doctoral student John "Alex" Halderman:

"I expect I will be well-represented in the case of a lawsuit. If pressing the Shift key is a violation of the DMCA, then the law needs to be changed."

This case further illustrates the absurdity of the DCMA, and, more specifically, the absurdity of the establishment that seeks to invoke it at every turn.
