    The law’s an ass to have caused this.

      Let poor non-practising lawyer me see … I work as a financial printer … my client puts out misleading information (or whatever information deemed criminal by the law du jour) … and it’s also my fault because I happen to be the printer???

      If anything, I think a financial printer would be more liable in my example than an email provider could ever be in Snowden’s case.

      The mind boggles.
