      A legal challenge with far-reaching implications.

      If the prosecutor has a valid warrant to get the Echo data, it’s not up to Amazon to decide if the data is relevant to the case; the court has already decided that it is relevant.

      It sounds like they do have a warrant, because Amazon wants the warrant squashed.

      If Amazon doesn’t want a prosecutor getting data from the Echo, then they need to encrypt the data and give the encryption key to the customer, making it impossible for them to get the data without the customer’s permission. But that would deprive them of the possibility of making money off of that data, so I don’t think we’ll be seeing that.
