Research in Motion (RIM) is reportedly in talks to brings its BlackBerry platform into compliance with national laws in two countries that have threatened to ban the service.
A report in Indian newspaper The Economic Times said that RIM is in talks with the country's government about a system which could allow authorities to monitor communications on the platform for national security reasons.
Local papers in Kuwait, meanwhile, are reporting that RIM is in talks with authorities to block BlackBerry handsets from accessing some 3,000 pornographic web sites.
Both reports come days after the government of the United Arab Emirates decided to block BlackBerry services over data security worries and offshore data storage. The ban is set to take effect in October.
RIM has yet to formally comment on the reports, but executives have expressed confidence that the issues will be resolved.
Chief technology officer David Yach was recently quoted by Reuters as saying: "I believe they'll have trouble pulling the trigger to shut down BlackBerry. Most governments in the world rely on BlackBerry."
