Microsoft must surrender overseas data, US judge rules

It comes amid a debate over privacy and technology that erupted last year when former US National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden revealed the government's efforts to collect huge amounts of consumer data around the world.

AT&T, Apple, Cisco and Verizon all submitted court briefs in support of Microsoft, along with the privacy group Electronic Frontier Foundation.
