    What's changed?
    Not that a warrant would be needed either...*sigh*

    Just use Google+ hangouts instead of Skype. That's not completely private either, but Google is at least up front about their policies and evidently push back on law enforcement requests unless backed by warrants and such. Just because someone in power says "boo" doesn't mean they comply. They have a legal staff to deal with stuff like this because their future is bound up with the integrity of the web.

    Skype is already banned from world-wide from our company computers due to an inability to manage traffic through computers on which Skype is installed. The Skype TOS gives them the right to route traffic (not necessarily yours) through your computer. Corporate security at HQ scanned all networked PC several years ago, and anyone w/ Skype was told to get rid of it.
