Given all the recent press about RIM having to open its email services to some governments, I felt like taking a look at another frequently used communications tool: Skype.

The famous German lawyer Udo Vetter reports that the German government can now listen in on Skype 2 Skype calls:

I asked the prosecutor if he could – now – check onto Skype to Skype calls. He confirmed this.

The Judge then went on to tell me that she saw some Skype protocols in very recent suits.

Given Vetter’s excellent reputation in German IT circles, I consider his statements true – looks like all the encryption hubbub was but marketing hyperbole…
