I don't know who modded you up +5, but buy a clue. When a corporation is being sued/indicted it's that organization that is being taken to court, not it's individual employees, agents, or officers (unless some serious misconduct is happening individually). Therefore the legal entity (i.e. the Corporation) gains some of the legal benefits (4th Amendment) and responsibilities because that is the purpose of a corporation: to create a legal entity that stands apart from the individual members on it's own behalf.

Look up the meaning of the phrase "corporate veil."

The relevant part of the ruling:

We now conclude that the answer to the reported question is, "Yes, where the defendant's compelled decryption would not communicate facts of a testimonial nature to the Commonwealth beyond what the defendant already had admitted to investigators." Accordingly, we reverse the judge's denial of the Commonwealth's motion to compel decryption.

So what they're saying is that since the decryption key isn't "testimony" it doesn't count under the 5th Amendment. (IANAL)

+ - US releases memo justifying drone strike on American citizen-> 1

Submitted by schwit1
schwit1 (797399) writes "Under orders from a US appeals court, the Obama administration has released a memo justifying the killing of American citizens with a targeted "drone strike." The memo presents a case for killing Anwar al-Awlaki, an al-Qaeda propagandist who was killed in Yemen in 2011. The strike on al-Awlaki has been widely debated since then, especially after a separate attack inadvertently killed al-Awlaki's 16-year-old son Abdulrahman. Now, thanks to a Freedom of Information Act request made by the ACLU and others, it's possible to read both the court's reasoning and the 30-page legal debate on whether he and others could be killed without due process under the CIA's drone program."

+ - Will Giant Pyramids Save the World?

Submitted by LoLobey
LoLobey (1932986) writes "Scott Adams has proposed a pyramid project to save the world via energy generation and tourism. Basically build giant pyramids, miles wide and high, in the desert to generate power via chimney effect and photo voltaics with added features for tourism (he’s planning ahead for when robots take over all the work and we’ll need something to do). He’s been big on a few “Big Ideas” lately (canals, ice bergs, ion energy), it appears he wants to save the world, or at least make it a better place. Pyramid idea seems borderline feasible, but impractical. What do you guys think?"

Does he live in such a powerful echo chamber / reality distortion field that he actually believes what he is saying, or does he have such disdain for the citizens that he is comfortable saying the opposite of what is true, to try to squeeze out a few extra votes from those who don't know any better?

Yes, and yes

+ - iOS 7 Updates Silently Removes Encryption for Email Attachments->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Apple has removed encrypted email attachments from iOS 7. Apple said back in June 2010 in regards to iOS 4.0: "Data protection is available for devices that offer hardware encryption, including iPhone 3GS and later, all iPad models, and iPod touch (3rd generation and later). Data protection enhances the built-in hardware encryption by protecting the hardware encryption keys with your passcode. This provides an additional layer of protection for your email messages attachments, and third-party applications." Not anymore."
