Google, Facebook, and Microsoft to File Joint Motion Supporting Apple

Apple earlier today filed a motion to vacate the order from a judge that would force the company to create a modified version of its iPhone software. Now, several of the top tech companies in Silicon Valley plan on filing a joint motion to support Apple in its continued fight with law enforcement over unlocking an alleged terrorist’s iPhone. According to the Wall Street Journal, the top three tech companies, including Google, Facebook, and Microsoft plan to file a joint motion that supports Apple’s efforts to protect the privacy of its customers. Sources say at least one other tech company plans to be included in the joint brief as well.In addition, BuzzFeed News is reporting that Amazon, Twitter, and Box are also planning to file briefs as well, but it is unclear if it will join the combined filing or file separately. The “friend of the court” briefs (amicus curiae) involve those who are not directly involved in a lawsuit, but have a strong interest in the matter and offers information that could influence the case.Share Article:Facebook,   Twitter,   LinkedIn,   Google Plus,   Email,   Reddit,   Digg,   Delicious,   StumbleUponFollow iClarified:Facebook,   Twitter,   LinkedIn,   Google Plus,   Newsletter,   App Store,   YouTubeAdvertise Here
