[liberationtech] Fwd: CryptoSeal shutters, ala: LavaBit

Naive question from an ignorant amateur:

What are the legal implications if service providers using any surveil-able
channel offer terms of service stating they will: Terminate service
provision prior to release of a user's information to a third party in
instances where prior notice of intended release has not been made.

I don't understand enough of the law to determine whether or not the series
of cases referenced below represents a new legal precedent or something
else. I.e. Given the commercial implications of many communications facilitated
services, could economic considerations create legal standing of comparable
relevance to the security considerations? If a commercial entity complies
with state coercion, in conflict with their commercial obligations that
they have explicitly rather than implicitly made, who arbitrates the spread
of loss & risk across actors?

Thanks for your thoughts!
Zack
