Microsoft has sued the US government, arguing that a law that can be used to prohibit technology companies from telling customers when law enforcement comes looking for their data is unconstitutional.

Microsoft's lawsuit is the US technology industry's latest high-profile challenge to the reach of law enforcement into cyberspace, coming a couple months after Apple fought an FBI order to disable an encryption measure on an iPhone connected to a mass shooting.

The company's case, filed in US District Court in Seattle, challenges a law enforcement tool Microsoft argues is being used in a way that violates its rights and those of its customers.

When law enforcement agencies get a warrant to grab emails or other data stored online, they can request a court order that bars internet service providers from informing the user that their documents were seized. Microsoft has received about 5600 federal demands for consumer data in the last 18 months. Almost half were accompanied by such secrecy orders.

In the physical world, Microsoft says, government agencies are typically required to give notice when seeking personal papers or letters.
