in which its described how having PGP encryption on your computer is now evidence of criminal intent.

even more concerning is the fact that stronger encryption is pretty much built into OSX (the ability to create encrypted Disk Images for example) and linux. not having played much with XP i dont know if that ability comes with.

all i know is i hope i didnt inadvertantly vote for these appeals court judges. *sigh*

Update: according to un_duende (see below) XP also has it.
SO YES. EVERYONE IS NOW A CRIMINAL. lovely.
