LOL. Good luck with this. The reason Apple prevailed in the iPhone case is that they have technical barriers in place. Amazon obviously doesn't. They will be compelled to produce the recordings.

Good for them indeed.

I'm against the government being able to obtain these recordings, but this is the stupidest legal argument I've ever heard. Machines with first-amendment rights? GET OUT.

I guess this does follow on from "corporations are people, my friend," but wouldn't this make Alexa an accomplice? :)
