Abstract

After the recent Microsoft v. United States decision, the law faces the task of clarifying questions about the international reach of a variety of legal authorities and processes. In so doing, it should maintain a level playing field for U.S. cloud companies who store their data extra-territorially. There is no policy reason to set a heavier compliance burden on U.S. companies in meeting these requests.
