"Warrant canaries rely upon the legal theory of compelled speech.  
Compelled speech happens when a person is forced by the government to make  
expressive statements they do not want to make. Fortunately, the First  
Amendment protects against compelled speech in most circumstances. In  
fact, we’re not aware of any case where a court has upheld compelled false  
speech. Thus, a service provider could argue that, when its statement  
about the legal process received is no longer true, it cannot be compelled  
to reissue the now false statement, and can, instead, remain silent. So  
far, no court has addressed this issue."
