Submission + - British teen jailed over encrypted password (bbc.co.uk)

An anonymous reader writes: Oliver Drage, 19, of Liverpool has been convicted of "failing to disclose an encryption key" which is an offense under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 and as a result has been jailed for 16 weeks. Police seized his computer but could not get past the 50-character encrypted password that he refused to give up. And just to get it out of the way, obligatory XKCD.
