Re: It seems it would set a precedent despite bills reassurances

At least if the demands are made through a (fairly?) open court system, we the populace can see what they are up to.

Perhaps if Apple go along with this one, the precedent will be set that Yes, Apple should disable the 10 strikes element on individual phones but also Yes, it must be done by getting a court order first.

Thereafter it's for the electorate to decide if the number of instances of FBI going for court order is excessive and should be curtailed by their choice of representatives.
