Microsoft Ireland Symposium

Just Security is pleased to announce the launch of an online symposium on United States v. Microsoft, which will be argued at the U.S. Supreme Court on February 27. The question in the case is whether Section 2703 of the Stored Communications Act (SCA) allows a court to order a U.S. provider of email services to disclose electronic communications stored outside the United States. Needless to say, the case raises important questions of privacy, law enforcement, internet regulation, and statutory interpretation in an international context. Over the next two weeks, posts from Pamela Bookman, Zachary Clopton, William S. Dodge, Kristen Eichensehr, James Grimmelmann, Paul Ohm, and Andrew Woods will address a number of these issues. Jennifer Daskal will round out the symposium with some closing reflections. We hope you enjoy the discussion.
