Have Microsoft quietly been subpoenaed after the Irish Data Case?

I'm getting the feel this has all been quietly subpoenaed on Microsoft from higher powers that be, with gag orders. I realise Microsoft has stupid people working for it, aswell as smart ones, but this doesn't make sense, even if MS are looking to monetise the data. There are easier ways to get users to opt in to generate the data they need, without producing a marketing train crash.

This justs get sneekier and sneekier. It feels far too clever for MS. This feels like its been forced on them.

It feels like a complete obsessive who won't stop until he has dotted every i and crossed every t, so that every Windows machine out there is 'on radar' and its activities monitorable.
