Cloud Act

On October 3, 2019, the United States and the United Kingdom entered into a first-of-its-kind executive agreement under the CLOUD Act. The text of the agreement was released on October 7, 2019.

For a fine overview of the provisions of the agreement, Jennifer Daskal and Peter Swire posted a summary on Lawfare, identifying some surprising provisions and others that fall a little flat. But there is a big flaw in the agreement that hasn’t been discussed — it allows either the US or UK to require a covered provider to wiretap a user located not in the US or UK, but in any third country, without the approval of that sovereign nation and perhaps even without its knowledge.
