Google Cites Amazon Competition in Response to EU


Google last week filed a response in a 6-year-old antitrust battle with the EU, which has charged that its search ads unfairly promoted its own shopping service and blocked rivals. The response addresses a supplementary statement of objections the European Commission sent to Google this summer.

Microsoft Wins Legal Victory in Fight Over Email Stored Abroad


Microsoft on Thursday won its nearly four-year battle against a New York district court judge’s warrant requiring it to turn over customer emails held on a server in Ireland.
Microsoft had complied with demands to turn over account information stored on its servers in the United States, but it had refused to give up the emails themselves, contending a U.S. judge did not have the authority to issue warrants for information stored abroad. Microsoft two years ago lost its bid to vacate the warrant, and it subsequently lost an appeal.

Feds Crack iPhone, Warn Apple to Keep One Eye Open


After a bitter legal battle over encryption and privacy rights, the Department of Justice on Monday announced it would back out of its case against Apple because the FBI was able to crack the code of the iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino, California, shooters. The department had asked a federal magistrate judge in California to force Apple to help the FBI crack open the encrypted smartphone by writing new code that would allow it to gather additional evidence in the December terrorist attack that left 14 dead and dozens wounded.
