But see, it really doesnt matter because it is not big brother BlackBerry's place to determine what is legal for end users. After all, its not legal for me to throw my phone and hit a person in the face either but RIM does not make me carry it on a lanyard to prevent the unlawful assault.
I'm glad to hear that you know everything about the legal aspects of recording calls. That's fantastic. However, regardless of whether of it's RIM's job, they have a legal right to not offer an application through AppWorld that could allow their users to possibly break the law. It's the same reason that they do not allow apps for the distribution of pornography. It's not their job, but they have the right.
