Re: New business model?
"The only other explanation I can think of is that the US Government WANTS to encourage the proliferation of cyber crime. Or is my tinfoil on too tight? Please HELP !"
It not that at all. What I suspect Governments want is whatever oversight of the populous that they want (not need); North Korea-lite if you will providing just enough freedom to stop them revolting. If as a side product of the removal of that dangerous weapon we call encryption, cyber crime increases, then, as long as it doesn't impact their tax revenues, it's someone else's problem.
