RIM handed snooping ultimatum by Indian government – The INQUIRER

India’s government is delaying the licencing of Blackberry services by the mobile wireless company Tata Teleservices until its demands are met. It has threatened other Blackberry service providers in India with licence [sic] cancellation unless they also give it access to emails transmitted over Blackberry services by March 31st.

Speculation: might tax evasion and other financial crimes be the real target here? And, I suppose, organized crime which is at the nexus of financial crime, terrorism, political corruption, and just about every other Bollywood plot.
