backdoor your software for 'nashanul securite reasonz'

Then everytime you're uploading something to Box.com, Dropbox, Mega.co.nz, SkyDrive, etc. the NSA is getting a readout of those files in real time.

Is there any law that would prevent this? Is there any reason they haven't already done that?

Sometimes I type stuff that will get the NSA looking at me because I'm lonely.

Normally I'd just say "Derpcake post" but this attitude is actually frightening and has real-world consequences.

Mega.co.nz


Considering that Kim Dotcom is already on not so friendly terms with the US government, and I don't know if the new Mega has US based servers, I'd say this is unlikely. Note that the .nz means New Zealand.

But it's already happened with Microsoft and its services, and I'm sure if it hasn't happened already, it's gonna happen with anything else that has servers based in the US.

Or, you know, people that don't like being treated like criminals and having their privacy infringed under the guise of "national security".

Mega isn't the most secure site in the world anyway. The last I read there are plenty of security exploits among other security concerns.
