Re: Is it possible to quit Google? There have been various cases around the country involving encryption and the courts trying to force the defendant to decrypt his files or drive. In some cases the judge has ruled he must decrypt or face contempt. In others, the judge has ruled that encryption keys are protected by the 5th.
Ultimately it is going to take a Supreme Court ruling to settle this once and for all. Until then it is up to the discretion of the judge in the particular case (or the appeals courts).
Getting people to stop using windows is more or less the same as trying to get people to stop smoking tobacco products. They dont want to change; they are happy with slowly dying inside. -- munky99999

Are there any cases where hard drive data not encrypted is protected under the 5th..or is it always those you encrypt that claim the 5th protects them?
People might be protected under the 5th..but a "computer" being protected ???? please that is really pushing the limit of common sense.
