Let's look at this another way. In the United States if I am the executor of an estate I can get full access to any assets with a certified Death Certificate and copy of the Executor Letter. Any bank will accept that, so why won't Apple?? BTW: The Executor Letter is a court order. Personally I think Apple is being a corporate dick in this case.

PS: I don't understand the logic. How does censoring my internet protect your children from porn? It just doesn't make any sense.

There is no logic. This topic comes up in politics as a way to make themselves look like they are doing something "for the children". Quite frankly, in Australia and here in the U.S. the elected officials should have better things to do with their time (and our money).
