As court weighs Microsoft case, rest of world feels a big stake in privacy ruling

WASHINGTON Later this month, Supreme Court justices will hear a case involving Microsoft’s heated dispute with federal prosecutors over whether it must turn over data currently hosted in a storage facility in Ireland. At the heart of the legal dispute is whether U.S. courts can compel a company to turn over an individual’s data when it is held overseas.

I sure hope not.

Something similar came up in the Apple vs. DOJ flap. I argued then that no, governments should not be able to compel corporations to turn over data, not even uder the guise of getting terrorists or other bad guys; even though we know corporations themselves are no saints.

That was before Trump was president. I sure hope the pro-DOJ people in that threat now see what I make these arguments.
