A legislative fix is not only in the best interest of businesses, noted Aaron Cooper, vice president of global policy at The Software Alliance, otherwise known as the BSA. "If the DOJ case is accepted and the DOJ wins, you put everyone in a bad situation," he said. "Other countries will follow the United States' lead. We don't want to turn over data to countries without a US level of probable cause."
