how about a simple legal loop hole. Divide the data, sort of like a RAID does to different hard drives, placing some on a different server in a different country, where no server holds a full piece of any file. Cloud companies can turn over data for their country, but it will be incomplete. And it will be next to impossible for the government to be able to serve warrants for the data for every country that has a piece of the data, especially without knowing which country has any piece of an exact file.

@mac_angel I could see a service like that having an appeal to users who need that level of security. But for everyone else the latency requirement to open a simple word file that is encrypted across 3 continents is not going to be worth it. Secondly if a host country decides to block access because said company wont serve up their data requests, all users are going to suffer missing or broken/corrupted files.
