I'm sure the EFF has been saying it since before then.

I agree it isn't new, but:

1) People don't necessarily realize that putting data on a cloud service reduces their legal protections.

2) It's still not a good thing for those services to receive less protection.

3) FYI Goodwin did have a local copy, but claims his hard drive failed, thus the data was lost.

That said, the EFF is asking for a summary judgment, and the Feds are saying they want a narrow hearing so Goodwin can prove his interest.

I also don't see any indications in the brief that indicate they've access the data. I.e. as per usual, the EFF is a bit hysterical in its claims.
