Microsoft publishes 2013 Law Enforcement Requests Report

On Thursday, Microsoft published its most recent Law Enforcement Requests Report, which details the number of legal demands for customer data the company received from law enforcement agencies around the world and how Microsoft responded to those requests.

This is the company’s third report and covers the period from July to December 2013.

“These reports are part of our ongoing commitment to transparency on these issues. We believe that public availability of such data is important to our customers as well as to an increasingly broad community of advocates and stakeholders working to find the appropriate balance of policies that promote public safety and personal data privacy,” wrote John Frank, deputy general counsel and vice president of Legal & Corporate Affairs at Microsoft in a blog post Thursday.
