Dozens of technology companies are backing Apple (AAPL) in its encryption case against the FBI, and one expert said that’s a sign of how the case’s outcome could reverberate throughout the tech industry. This week, companies filed amicus briefs with the court in support of Apple, including Google (GOOG), Microsoft (MSFT), Intel (INTC), LinkedIn (LNKD), Twitter (TWTR), and Facebook (FB). ‘The third party court filings are a good indication of the breadth of ramifications that this case could have,’ said Matt Larson, Litigation Analyst with Bloomberg Intelligence. ‘A lot of companies have weighed in, expressing concerns over cybersecurity and about unforeseen impacts on their business, in software development and device manufacturing. All kinds of different companies have voiced concern over the legal precedent that this case could set.’
