BlackBerry may pursue legal action against future product info leakers
BlackBerry's chief executing officer has reportedly published a blog post in which he has promised that the company would pursue legal action against a party who stole 'confidential information about a future BlackBerry product and made it public'.
CEO John Chen has reportedly claimed that the leaks are distracting, and at their worst downright misleading to BlackBerry's stake holders, when the fact is that they are not.
According to Tech Crunch, the legal action is tiresome because it represents the company taking an inexplicably tough stance against something, which arguably works to its benefits.
Although, other companies use these kinds of rumours and early reports to generate buzz around their product, Chen has argued in his post that this latest leak has crossed the line into 'criminality', the report added.
