Random Pagan Verse:
I know a third: in the thick of battle,
If my need be great enough,
It will blunt the edges of enemy swords,
Their weapons will make no wounds.

Tech companies are joining forces to fight against the FBI's desire to get its hands on people's emails. Apple, Amazon, Cisco, and Microsoft have all filed an amicus brief in support of Google.

Silicon Valley giants have known for years how difficult it is to fight against the government, especially when it wants to get its hands on the data of your users. This time, they're working together to back Google who was ordered by a court to hand over emails in response to an FBI search warrant. In this particular situation, the court said it doesn't matter if Google has the emails stored on data centers that are not on the territory of the United States.

“When a warrant seeks email content from a foreign data center, that invasion of privacy occurs outside the United States - in the place where the customers’ private communications are stored, and where they are accessed, and copied for the benefit of law enforcement, without the customer’s consent,” reads the brief filed by the tech giants Apple, Amazon, Cisco, and Microsoft.
