"Telegram to share pirated movies and stolen Netflix and Spotify accounts" - Business Insider

"Telegram has also been in the news this week following a court-ordered ban in Russia. On Friday, a Moscow court ruled in an 18-minute hearing to block the popular cloud-based messaging service following an extensive dispute around government access to messages. The court had demanded access to Telegram's encryption keys and messages, which they say they need in order to investigate crime and terrorist attacks. Telegram refused, and pointed out that what the court is asking for is impossible due to the way the service is built." - Zoë Bernard
