Cloud archiving | GDPR | Stored Communications Act | Cloud Act

By: James McCarthy, Esq.
March 26th, 2018

With bipartisan support of the US., UK and major tech companies, new legislation enacted on March 23, 2018, replaces the outdated 1986 Stored Communications Act.  The Cloud Act[1] was forged out of necessity and fast tracked after a cross border conflict erupted when U.S. authorities sought a subpoena in NY for an Irish national’s emails stored in Ireland. Microsoft promptly filed suit against the United States and the Supreme Court is poised to make a decision in that case after oral argument earlier this year, yet the Justices implored Congress to replace the prior law to avoid a decision predicated on a law that predated cloud- based computing.[2] Fueling the rush to put new laws in place is the fact that tech companies are incurring massive fines by complying with US law enforcement subpoenas that violate the privacy laws of other nations.
