RIM close to a deal with Indian Defense department

Rumours are everywhere that the Indian government (DoT), their security services and RIM are close to a deal regarding their ability to ‘snoop’ on encrypted Blackberry messages.

This hardly seems like a big deal since it is normal for a government to retain the ability to where necessary and legal capture messages whether they are telephone calls, mobile calls, text messages or any other form of communication.

RIM just yield no one is going to shout Human Rights Violation here.
