A Deal to Avert BlackBerry Ban Could Be Precedent

Date: August 7, 2010
Author: THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
QUOTE: A preliminary agreement between the maker of the popular BlackBerry smart phone and the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which government officials say grants them some access to users' data, will avert a ban on the phone in that country. The pact involves placing a BlackBerry server inside Saudi Arabia, Saudi telecom regulatory officials said, and that likely will let the government monitor messages and allay official fears the service could be used for criminal purposes.
