    Real legal issue with BBM 5

    i spoke with a mutual friend of mine who works in rims legal dept. rim is mad in many different ways. heres what i got from him.

    "the bbm 5.0 and several storm 5.0 os leaks as well as many other leaks fell through the cracks from rim employees as well as testers, programmers, even carrier employee field testers. now the problem is all where under nda. which in basic is a contract that the person who had the software distributed by rim is property of rim. and is not to be released. sold. or distributed. in any way shape or form" word for word from the horses mouth.

    the problem this caused which is well known to us. or maybe not but also from the horse mouth. (lawyer) "the release of bbm 5.0 which was downloaded by upward of 1 million people. as of thursday morning. apparently bbm5 uses 2x the bandwidth of the current bbm. causing rims servers to seize and over load. causing messaging to go out and sit between the user and the server(which caused the send receive delays) and as they got servers back up messages would then all go out at once or in different order. the server problems caused the big wigs to step in and get to the bottom of where the leaks came from. also getting them to see the power of the servers they need for the full roll out of bbm5.0 in the near future"

    also went off the record of saying rim is not going after "bloggers" there going directly after the people who specifically signed nda or as i like to call em gag orders. not users or distributors of bbm 5.0 who are not legally binded on paper to rim. all they can do is "request links be taken down" or forcefully take links down" no legal trouble from what im hearing unless someone physically signed a contract with rim....

    take this as you wish. :hail:hybrids:bandit:

    Thanks for the info Nicky, I'm sure the hybrid builders
    Are still going to play it safe, especially after the emails
    That were sent out. There are ways around the hybrid issues
    It would just be more complicated than the usual download and run.
    Its nice to here there mad at the right people though.

    Oh we got the legal notice from RIMs lawyers to remove the files. Whoops. Really didn't think it would cause RIMs servers to shut down by me leaking it...
