I think authorities will be able to recover the data quickly and they do not actually need her cooperation. We'll see what happens.

The basic idea was that revealing her passphrase wasn’t self incriminating since she had already incriminated herself. My understanding is that under US law you still can still take the 5th to avoid giving up your passphrase if it would actually incriminate you.

At least that’s what I read in some other news articles. Perhaps someone with more knowledge on the issue can confirm.

On a side note, I think I just made up some new variations of incriminate. I’m not a lawyer and have no idea what the proper wording is :-)

I understand that passphrases can be "forgotten" especially when worried about your personal freedom. I have a problem regarding my evaluation version of ESET for linux. As I said, I'm in Brazil and when I try to order online I only have the page in Portuguese. I don't speak Portuguese and the option to change the language is not available. I can't seem to find a route to customer service, just choose my problem from a drop down list and then return to a "contact us" page. I like the product, but may be forced to uninstall. Any suggestions?
