Pornographic Content Blocked by BlackBerry

BlackBerry stopped access to pornography on its smartphones in Indonesia.

It is the first time that BlackBerry maker Research In Motion (RIM) has agreed to filter pornographic content under pressure from any country.

The decision follows after the world's biggest Muslim nation of 237 million people gave RIM the deadline of Jan 21 to shut down BlackBerry services and revoke its licence if it didn't stop access to pornography. Reports from Jakarta said porn websites, including Playboy, couldn't be accessed by users.

Those who tried to access porn sites met with the response: "This website can't be accessed via this network,'' Bernama news agency said.
