A new Microsoft patent points towards Skype becoming equipped for lawful interception.
The patent was filed back in 2009, but published last week and picked up by Computerworld. Titled "Legal Intercept", it covers one way in which a VoIP-based communications system might enable a call to be intercepted and covertly recorded, naming Skype as one of the services to which it could be applied.
OS transparency is your only protection from this.
