Stop The Leaks WorldWide Statement

As BlackBerry fans, we love to hear and see new information about our favored brand. Leaks are great, but not when it harms the very company which the people who propagate and distribute the leak claim to support.

BlackBerry has a Beta Program to get real world testing on upcoming OS versions, where the company invites a number of ‘trusted’ users to test a Beta OS. The participants in the Beta Program are held to a certain level of secrecy, for the good of the program and the continued success of BlackBerry. The idea is that these people, in full knowledge, download the software, test it out and give feedback so the company can deliver the OS without any flaws.

These are Beta versions, not meant for the public. But there’s a group of users that tend to leak these OS’s (latest: 10.3.2) and certain blogs continue to support this illegal action, knowing that it hurts the company.

We truly understand the thirst for a new OS, but leaking BETA OS is a crime. It is stealing software.

Do the right thing; follow Chen’s statement from last March 2014:

“One of the most frustrating things for all of us at BlackBerry is when a critical and confidential project is reported in the media before we are ready to discuss it. Leaks are, at their best, distracting, and at their worst downright misleading to our stakeholders. The business implications of a leak are seldom advantageous.”

Stop the bleeding! No more Beta leaks, don’t support this action!

The below collection of BlackBerry fan sites and BBM Channels are taking a collective stance on these leaks. We will not support the leaks and those that provide them. We will not promote the leaks and those that distribute them. We do choose, as fans, to support and promote BlackBerry, and we invite you, the BlackBerry fan, to join us.
