Re: Re: Re: @ rtli- about contradiction.
"In the hypothetical case of a legal system in which you only have to reveal _if you know it_, that could work. However, the law as it stands requires you to reveal the password."
True and true. What I was originally responding to was the line:
"Remember than in Britain it's now a criminal offence *not* to give up your password if the Authorities demand it."
Now I interpret "if the Authorities demand it" as meaning by way of contrast to the ruling in America, viz that it would be against the Fifth to _ever_ have to give up your password. The legal checks and balances behind "the Authorities demand[ing] it" don't enter into the discussion. So explain to me why I'm suddenly accused of supporting every part of RIPA? All I'm after is middle ground: due process _and_ the authority to search for evidence.
