crimeandpunishment writes: Research in Motion says it has not agreed to give the Indian government greater access to encrypted information sent by Blackberry's corporate clients. India wants heightened surveillance, but RIM says "We won't compromise on the security architecture of our corporate e-mails". Last week India's internal security chief said "BlackBerry has assured the Ministry of Home Affairs that the issue of monitoring of the BlackBerry will be sorted out soon". The talks with India, and the United Arab Emirates impending ban on some Blackberry services, aren't the only international issues RIM is dealing with. Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and other nations are talking about similar blockages. Some industry experts believe RIM offered China some concessions before the Blackberry was introduced there. But RIM issued a statement Tuesday denying it has given some governments access to Blackberry data.
