I disagree, most businesses are not paid for compliance with legal requirements or helping police/government with enquiries.
It's quite common for businesses to have to pay to comply with the law. For example when financial institutes have to report details to counter terrorism agencies. The cost of this compliance is just a part of doing business in this area.
Similarly the retention of records for a certain amount of time (as is often legislated for medical and legal practices). The law says you gotta store the data, but governments don't pay you to do it.
Similarly the checks that pharmacies/chemists have to do when giving out certain medications. The government doesn't install the systems or remunerate the people for their time. Even though the only reason it's there is for compliance.
I guess an IT company should be different?
