Microsoft must surrender overseas data, US judge rules

In an extremely worrying step for anyone who already believes the US Government has too much power, it would now appear that even if your data resides in a Microsoft location outside the US they can still gain access. My personal view is that sovereignty of data is a key decision for anyone who is seeking to move to a cloud provider. If this is not over-turned it could have far reaching consequences.
