Court America Will Resolve The Question Of A Stored Microsoft Email Abroad

The American Supreme Court Monday (16/10) approved the appeal the Justice Department about whether American investigators could get the email that is stored outside of the country if they have a search warrant.

Starting in 2013, Microsoft rejected the demands of the American authorities to return the email stored on a data center in Ireland. Though the investigators had search warrants to obtain personal records-in this case, email-about drug trafficking case, Microsoft argued the warrant was valid for the Americans but not for other countries.

Microsoft's lawyers stated that the Stored Communications Act of 1986, the federal law governing the electronic records, do not include the data outside the United States. I wish that technology companies include foreign Government later could ask Microsoft to submit the data stored in the server's America.

A panel of three judges on the 2nd Circuit Court in New York defended Microsoft who refused the demands of the Ministry of Justice. Microsoft decision-that Ireland becomes a precedent for a technology company in America. In essence, technology companies can hold digital evidence of a crime in America if that data stored on the server in a foreign country.
