Re: Encryption is not made "illegal"

Err... no, it just doesn't. Look at the language again:

to disclose, where practicable, the content of communications...

to remove electronic protection applied by or on behalf of the telecommunications operator

There's nothing there that prevents you from having all the encryption you like. You just can't get it from a "telecommunications operator". At least, not a UK one.
