On February 27, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in United States v. Microsoft Corp., examining whether warrants issued under the Stored Communications Act reach emails and other user data that U.S. providers store overseas. The Court’s decision is likely to have lasting implications for multinational companies’ interactions with the U.S government and governments overseas, and the technology sector is particularly invested in the outcome. At the same time, Congress is considering new legislation that would specifically cover these types of records and could also give foreign governments an ability to obtain data held by providers in the U.S.

On Thursday, March 15, 2018, join our expert panel for a dissection of the case, the proposed legislation, and what various outcomes will mean for companies in the private sector. Will the case propel the current trend of data localization laws, moving us even further toward a more localized world of data? Or could the CLOUD Act make the case irrelevant? We hope you are able to join us as we address these and other issues.
