This really could be an important case for everyone. If won, the U.S. Government could do the same to any U.S. company, resulting in, as is indicated, businesses and individuals taking their business away from U.S. companies.

Microsoft, one of the world’s largest e-mail providers, is resisting a government search warrant to compel the firm to turn over customer data held in a server located overseas.

In what could be a landmark case, the Redmond, Wash., company is arguing that such a warrant is not justified by law or the Constitution. Microsoft and other tech firms also fear that if the government prevails and can reach across borders, foreign individuals and businesses will flee to their non-U.S. competitors.

The materials sought by the government are e-mails held in a Microsoft data center in Ireland and connected to a drug-trafficking investigation.[url]Microsoft Fights Search Warrant Over Data Held Outside U.S.[/url]
