BlackBerry CEO vows legal action to stop leaks

BlackBerry CEO John Chen isn’t a happy camper right now. Recently a leak put up images and details of a future product and he is very upset. Chen says that leaks hurt the company and its shareholders. He does recognize that they are good in a way to help get people excited about BlackBerry products.

However, Chen says that when leaks become criminal, BlackBerry will take legal action. 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 BlackBerry will take legal action against employees and those outside the company when they criminally gain access to information and leak it to the public. "We will always take appropriate actions to prevent leaks from happening and in some cases this means prosecuting individuals — internally or externally — who leak confidential information," he said.

Chen's talk comes not long after Microsoft landed in hot water for accessing the Hotmail account of a blogger who received inside information on Microsoft software. Microsoft accessed his Hotmail account to find out who inside the company was leaking confidential data. Once found, Microsoft had the man arrested and is pressing charges. Chen didn't get specific in his post about whom BlackBerry was taking legal action against.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
