Looks like the Canadian telecom major, Blackberry has lost the war against Indian authorities already. Earlier we told told you about the deadline which the Indian Govt. had set for Blackberry to allow the Govt. to access consumer data. Now we have reports that the chief of the United Nation’s telecommunications agency has urged the Blackberry manufacturer to allow law enforcement agencies access customer data
The chief of UN Telecom Agency said that governments have legitimate security concerns and all governments which are engaged in the fight against terrorism (countries like India and a few more) has the right to access customer data from BlackBerry.
RIM has already agreed to provide the Saudi government access consumer data. If it now complies with India’s demands, Blackberry may end up receiving similar demands from other countries too. And if it does not, the Indian government might disable messaging support in Blackberry devices across the country.
