It was previously mentioned that RIM was under pressure to filter pornographic content from BlackBerry devices over in Indonesia, and now it has been confirmed that RIM has agreed to such a move, stating that “Research in Motion is fully committed to working with Indonesia’s carriers to put in place a prompt, compliant filtering solution for BlackBerry subscribers in Indonesia as soon as possible.” This move shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise as Indonesia had enacted a strict anti-pornography law back in 2008. Reports also indicate that the Indonesian government is also requesting that RIM establish a server presence in the country so that it can easily access and monitor data sent by its citizens from BlackBerry devices. Not the most comforting news of the day, is it?
