Re: They dont want to use the MLAT.

It does seem extraordinary that the US government is attempting to assume the power to compel US companies to break the law in other countries. Sheer hubris aside, it puts those companies in an impossible position. I expect US companies holding data in Ireland, for example, have been working hard on readying alternative corporate structures where they don't have direct control of the foreign entity.
