“It is no different than [the question of] should anybody ever have been able to tell the phone company to get information, should anybody be able to get at bank records.”
As per the Financial Times, Microsoft has not yet commented officially on this case.
He also said that– “Nobody’s talking about a back door. This is a specific case where the government is asking for access to information,” “They are not asking for some general thing, they are asking for a particular case.”
