    Judge Orders Defendant to Decrypt PGP-Protected Laptop

    How about just saying no, sure you would be sent to jail but they are going to release you after a while. I like the idea of putting in a different password and it goes to unused volume that you populate with crap myspace, family photos, facebook. Its a good idea.
