Wiretapping in Italy
Encrypted phones are big business in Italy as a defense against wiretapping:
What has spurred encryption sales is not so much the legal wiretapping authorized by Italian magistrates—though information about those calls is also frequently leaked to the press—but the widespread availability of wiretapping technology over the Internet, which has created a growing pool of amateur eavesdroppers. Those snoops have a ready market in the Italian media for filched celebrity conversations.
