What are the potential ramifications of the legal fight over data on Microsoft’s servers in Ireland?

The US government is seeking access to email data that is stored on Microsoft servers in Ireland. Microsoft says that that data is not subject to US subpoena because it isn’t in the US. The government says, essentially, that it's in the cloud and everything in the cloud is in the US. If the US prevails in this case, what will be the impact on the cloud industry?

I can't imagine how the government can prevail in this case, and if they do it will have a chilling effect, or we may see cloud servers migrate to places where the US legal can't reach. Of course, no one would have predicted that a bunch of North Koreans would kill a US movie either.
