Microsoft Is Supported in Its Case against US Government

Microsoft Is Supported in Its Case against US Government

A number of tech and media firms, privacy groups and prominent computer scientists filed legal briefs in support of Microsoft in its case against the American government. Microsoft claims that the case will be fundamental to the future of global technology.

The software developer is trying to appeal a government order to hand over emails stored on its servers located in Ireland. Although Microsoft has already lost its appeal twice in court, it is now challenging the order in the US Court of Appeals for the second circuit.

Many tech giants – eBay, Apple, Cisco, Amazon and others – filed in support of the company, along with 2 of the largest business organizations in the country – the US Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers. Finally, media groups like ABC, CNN, Fox News and the Guardian also joined the case.

One should admit this is quite an unusual level of cooperation among the rivals. All of them argue that the United States is overreaching its authority, and this order can set a dangerous precedent for government access to data stored online, even abroad.

Microsoft claims that allowing the American government to use the American courts in attempt to access emails stored in Ireland is not quite fair, because this precedent would allow other governments to make similar moves and in response demand access to data stored in the United States, let alone that such a move would inevitably damage trust in the tech sector and harm privacy.

Media organizations joined the case to express concern that a victory for the United States would allow the US government to demand data stored by them in the cloud. And news outfits, as you can understand, have information that many governments want.

As for this particular Microsoft court case, it centers on a drug investigation that is currently being conducted by American authorities. The lawyers point out that the US legal system already has practices for international crime investigations, which makes using the American courts to reach data stored abroad unnecessary. In fact, in most cases Ireland handed over documents to the American authorities when asked through Irish courts, as the US has treaties with many countries that allow them to seek the required data through local courts.
