Someone is about to get sued by BlackBerry
Leaks are a way of life on the internet with many new products coming to public view [thank you,
] long before they are officially announced. Technology firms try all they can to eliminate these leaks, but it can be very difficult these days.
BlackBerry is fed up with leaks within its country and plans to take legal action against an unnamed party that leaked confidential information about its products online. According to BlackBerry, this party stole confidential details about a future Blackberry product by posing as an employee of a carrier partner to get access to secure networks at BlackBerry.
BlackBerry says that it understands that sometimes
curiosity about its future products is good for the company
, but when that curiosity turns criminal it "must take strong action."
BlackBerry CEO John Chen
wrote, "This is why I want to make you aware that, right now, we are pursuing legal action against a party who stole confidential information about a future BlackBerry product and made that information public. This person falsely posed as an employee of one of our carrier partners to obtain access to secured networks."
Chen says that his company will always take appropriate action to stop leaks from happening and in some instances that means taking legal action. That action will be taken against people working internally or externally.
Chen wrote, "This may mean you see a few less blog posts with photos and rumors of the next BlackBerry smartphones. I know those can be fun for our fans, but rest assured that we’re committed to communicating our biggest updates to you early and often – when they are ready to be shared."
"If they're going to pirate somebody, we want it to be us rather than somebody else." -- Microsoft Business Group President Jeff Raikes
