Why Apple is defending Microsoft in court
NEW YORK -- When are your private emails really out of the U.S. government's reach? Microsoft thinks it knows the answer and is fighting in court to prove its point. At a press gathering in New York on Monday, Microsoft laid out its case for why it is refusing to comply with a federal subpoena and search warrant for some customers' emails. The emails live in a data center in Ireland. And Microsoft argues they should be off-limits to the U.S. government until Ireland gives the OK.
