Microsoft, which hinges on a law passed decades before the modern internet came into existence, could have broad consequences for how digital communications are accessed by law enforcement, and for the nearly $250 billion cloud-computing industry. "The case is hugely important, it has implications for the future of the internet," says Jennifer Daskal, a former Justice Department official who now teaches at American University Washington College of Law.
