LastPass

I was reading this review:

http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2406190,00.asp

And noted this under the "Secure Storage" heading:

With LastPass, all of your passwords and other data are stored online in a highly encrypted format. The system is designed so that the people at LastPass have no access to your password. Even if subpoenaed to release your encrypted data, they simply couldn't.

Whether this is just the magazine's take on it, or part of official LastPass spiel, I know not.

This reminds me of the situation with Lavabit - discussed at length here on the forum - and makes me wonder if, in a similar situation, LastPass would still not be able to provide the requested data to the authorities?
