Microsoft returns to win the American Government defending the privacy of users

For a while now, and before the arrival of Donald Trump to the Presidency of the United States, some technology companies had opted not to cooperate with the U.S. Government on issues of privacy, i.e., to not offer access to accounts or device users. We all remember the case of the iPhone with the FBI, iPhone forcing the refusal of Apple to unlock it, the Federal Investigation Agency to resort to an israeli company. But Apple was not the first that was planted. In the year 2014, Microsoft was taken to tribunals that refused to deliver a user data, data that is housed on servers located outside the United States.

On this occasion, the computer giant, has returned to win the American Government, again in a trial for the same reason, but in this case, has set a precedent that will allow them to all technology companies use it to fend off future requests from the Government. Microsoft made an act of 1986 which indicates that e-mails stored outside American territory is not subject to the requests or internal demands.

But the U.S. Government still has the possibility of a late appeal which carry the case to the Supreme Court of the United States, before next Tuesday. We do not know if now that Donald Trump is the President of the United States, and is beginning to fulfill the promises of his electoral campaigns, you must intend to plunge in the privacy of the users and removed a law of the manga that requires any company to provide the data of its users, regardless of whether your data are hosted on American territory or outside it.
