India Government Demands Facebook and Twitter Password

India Government asked Facebook and Twitter to hand over user information, including encrypted communications, in name of anti-terrorism.

India passed a new law which states Internet companies must turn over user information, including password, etc. upon government's request. A court issued warranty is not necessary.

In the States, Utah already granted prosecutors warrantless subpoena power in sex crimes with children involved.

In the UK, RIM vowed to assist the London police to track down users of its Blackberry who posted inciting messages online. Blackberry is known for its secure communication, guarded by encryption method which RIM claims impossible to break, not even by itself, or at least as it told the India government last time when they demand access to user information.
