This is not surprising. Although the current Google protested the requirements of the Philadelphia District Court, but the fact that the US government has no doubt that these US companies have jurisdiction. As early as before, the US government has repeatedly asked high-tech companies to provide data information, such as prism door events, FBI asked Apple unlock events.
