India Now Monitoring BlackBerry Network in IndiaThe saga continues?... or perhaps it is coming to an end.

News came out today that RIM has backed down and will be allowing the Indian government to monitor the BlackBerry network in India. The only concession RIM received from the Indian government was a promise that it won't be held liable if there's a leak of users' personal information. A promise? I certainly hope it's more iron-clad than that (I'm sure it is).

No word yet on when the government will start monitoring the network, but I'd guess it would happen sooner than later. This has been going on for some time now, and now that the Indian government has 'won' this one with RIM backing down... They'll want to get crackin' on it I'm sure.
