Hmm, they should be sure. It seems reasonably clear the USA Federal Government
has been able to intercept Skype since at least 2005. Presumably other
governments can buy this service as well.

If the service was widely available then why did the Bavarian
police bother with malware-style solutions to Skype interception
in 2007?

Given the attractiveness of Skype interception to non-US intelligence
agencies, I can't imagine the US government would be too happy with
Skype offering interception services to most non-US governments.

Best wishes, Glen
