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

Dave Winer:

“However, if there's any rationality to the justice system in the US, the EFF will prevail in the Grokster case. Why? Because, the act of freely distributing other people's work, without compensation, is something the user is doing, not the software developer.”

I couldn’t agree more; yet I wonder how many who have this view share the same view regarding firearms. I certainly would think that it is a consistent position. After all, the murder in downtown Hartford was not caused by the gun, nor was the illegal distribution of the latest CD du jour caused by the latest P2P app. Somehow though, I think that there are a lot of people who have incongruent opinions about these issues, which just goes to show – people take sides in issues as much because of the outcome they desire as they do the logic in the argument.
