"American law"

AIUI the Microsoft case is still wending its way to the Supremes. If Google have any sense they'll appeal this one as far as they can. Until decisions are reached there American law on the point is still unresolved.

But there's good reason to avoid relying on any US-based business to hold information securely, just in case. There's also good reason for multinationals to consider whether the US is a fit jurisdiction in which to base their operations.
