Are Skype And Google The Next Targets Of India?

I didn’t notice this earlier when I posted this story that there was this statement in The Globe And Mail article that I used as a source:

The authorities have for more than a year been looking at Google’s messaging, Skype and other providers of communication in India.

“Wherever there is a concern on grounds of national security the government will want access and every country has a right to lawful interference,” a senior interior security official, who declined to be identified, told Reuters.

So does that mean that Skype and Google have to circle the wagons? If so, then it’s high time that any company that in this situation tells India (or any other company for that matter) to stick it where the sun doesn’t shine. No matter how big the population is in India and how many dollars a company could make off of them, it isn’t worth this hassle.
