John Oliver used his Last Week Tonight show to break down the encryption battle between the FBI and Apple and look at what ramifications it may have.

Are you confused by the ongoing battle between the FBI and Apple? Chances are you’re not alone. But John Oliver has broken down the saga, digging into the case in his usual humourous, yet level-headed manner.

The clip looks at the subject of encryption, both sides of the debate, and the flaws with some of the arguments that the FBI supporters are making. Ultimately, as Oliver says, the outcome of this case could have long-reaching consequences for years to come.

It’s an interesting and enlightening segment that may answer some questions that you have about the ongoing legal drama. If nothing else, the 18 minute segment should provide you with some laughs along the way.

Apple will be taking to the stage on March 21st to make some product announcements and may have something to say about encryption. The following day, Apple will be at its first hearing regarding its case with the FBI.
