As far as I can tell, this is a win for encryption. It says that device manufacturers need to help law enforcement break into a device, but they do not need to create any backdoors. If Apple/Google/etc make it impossible for them to break into their own devices, then there is nothing that they can do. As long as they are not required to include backdoors then encryption wins.
