That is the price you pay. You cannot use any encryption
key that leaves your possession. Many so called 'free' countries
now have laws in place that any vendor must hand keys over
to them on demand and not tell *anyone* they have done so
or face long prison terms. 

The only answer to this is to ensure that will get them
nothing useful.
