..but a s.49 RIP order can require CSP to produce plaintext (or key) to
any past (or future) data. If the key isn't available (e.g there is
client-side code) a recipient of a s.49 can be required to give all
co-operation necessary to have a defence.
Wonder opinions if this sufficient for UK to (coercively) "do a
Hushmail" ? Or under Intel Services Act, or RIPA Pt.2 ?
