     Jennifer Caukin, Skype's director of corporate communications
     replied to us: "We have not received any subpoenas or court
     orders asking us to perform a live interception or wiretap of
     Skype-to-Skype communications. In any event, because of Skype's
     peer-to-peer architecture and encryption techniques, Skype would
     not be able to comply with such a request."
