A proposed bill in New York seeks to require that all smartphones sold in the state can be decrypted or unlocked and proposes hefty fines for vendors failing to comply.

The proposed law marks the latest effort by lawmakers to make it easier for law enforcement to access and read encrypted data stored on smartphones.

Should the proposed bill successfully pass through New York's state assembly and senate, Apple and Google could face fines of $2,500 per device sold in the state after January 1, 2016, if a retailer knowingly sold a smartphone that could not be unlocked or decrypted by the device manufacturer or operating-system provider.

...um... no... just... no...

lol, they try and try as much as they can. Reminds me of a while back when alphabet soup agencies wanted backdoors into all encryption protocols, though I'm not sure how in the world they planned on doing that. Perhaps they are covertly trying to circumvent it or find another method that suits their interests.  :yes:
