Another amicus brief, or "friend of the court" statement, has been filed in Apple's favor in its current legal fight with the FBI. This time the brief comes from a group of 16 major tech companies, including Twitter, ebay, Reddit and Kickstarter.
Apple is being ordered by the FBI an encrypted iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino shooting suspects. Apple has refused, stating that such a backdoor could set up a huge security risk for smartphones in the future. According to Re/code, the joint statement from the 16 companies said in part:
"The government's demand here, at its core, is unbound by any legal limits," the companies argue. "It would set a dangerous precedent, in which the government could sidestep established legal procedures authorized by thorough, nuanced statutes to obtain users' data in ways not contemplated by lawmakers."
The other companies that joined in this brief included Airbnb, Atlassian, Automattic, Cloudflare, GitHub, LinkedIn, Mapbox, Meetup, Square, Squarespace, Twilio, and Wickr.
