Skype Encryption Stumps German Police. TallGuyRacer writes “German police are unable to decipher the encryption used in the internet telephone software Skype to monitor calls by suspected criminals and terrorists, Germany’s top police officer, Joerg Ziercke, said. “The encryption with Skype telephone software … creates grave difficulties for us… We can’t decipher it. That’s why we’re talking about source telecommunication surveillance — that is, getting to the source before encryption or after it’s been decrypted.””

This is good news, although since Skype is closed-source I still wouldn’t recommend it for people concerned about eavesdropping.
