RIM sets guidelines for countries wanting access to its data

The latest news regarding the BlackBerry ban is a bit anti-climactic, with RIM declaring guidelines for the governments that want access to BlackBerry data. These guidelines clearly dictate the limits of information governments will be able to access when monitoring BlackBerry services, refusing access beyond what is legally required by a local government. RIM also said that whatever monitoring that the governments do will have to be vendor and technology neutral, which also ensures that RIM is not required to provide any methods of access that is not available for other devices.

This move goes against the news that RIM would be cooperating with the government of Saudi Arabia by providing them with the access, access that is certainly not vendor neutral. We’ll all just have to wait and see what will happen next, or, for the true climax to the story.
