BlackBerry's Reprieve in India Puts Google, Skype in the Hot Seat

Yesterday, India gave RIM a two-month grace period in which it will be allowed to continue its BlackBerry services while government security agencies test a system that gives them access to encrypted messages and email.

A spokesman for Google says that the company hasn’t yet received a notice to comply with security demands.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
