IDG News Service is the wire service representing PCWorld, Computerworld, MacWorld, Network World, CIO and dozens of other leading tech publications worldwide.
Apple recently raised its defenses in a court briefing, ranging from attacking the purposes of the All Writs Act, to the 1st and 5th Amendment arguments. Perry commented on the the overall balancing the needs of law enforcement with the privacy and personal safety interests of the public, and the fact that the ” government needs a ‘compelling’ interest to force Apple to write new code,” he said. Still, however, Apple faces an “uphill battle.”
