"RIM is in talks with domestic phone carriers to find a “prompt, compliant filtering solution" ... the maker of the BlackBerry said in a statement today .. The government will meet with RIM and six mobile-service providers Jan. 17 to ask them to filter out pornographic websites, Muhammad Budi Setyawan [pictured], director general of post and telecommunications at the ministry, said today by phone. The ministry is targeting pornography, not RIM, as most Indonesian providers block such sites, he said"
