Re: "why buyers beyond the middle kingdom would consider its offerings"

Yes, the USA has some sort of legality, but Alibaba isn't a small player, so ultimately at some point a large USA company and a large Chinese company will balance together at the point in which they only cave in to their respective governments. I think this can be seen for any company regardless of nation, so the question might not be who do you trust to store your data, but who do want to keep your data from. There could be reasons that certain companies would want to hide "evidence" under another nations laws.
