    I expect to see more international businesses take advantage of this opportunity. But, for many there will always be a trust issue with Russian firms as there is with the Chinese. To those individuals, I would say that they can do no worse than what the NSA and others are doing, so why not give them a chance? The bigger issue is how can it be known for sure that these agencies will be avoided? The NSA has proven itself to be quite adept at digging into places where they have no real business being. I'm still pleased to see other businesses providing an alternative.

    Just because a server is outside Russia, USA, China, doesn't exclude the CEO of the company being threatened with criminal charges if he doesn't turn over the records being sought by those governments.
