REACH Advisory Council decides to take action: Censorship 'damages'

JORDAN (Star) - The REACH Advisory Council has called for a review of the software censorship policies in Jordan and is exploring the possibility of exempting software products from governmental censorship, highlighting that tampered software packages reduce end user satisfaction and has an indirect impact that negatively affects the development of the IT industry.

Int@j, Jordan's Information Technology Association, also highlighted the practical implications of the ongoing censorship procedures to the IT industry, arguing that damaged software packages and delays in its delivery may cause breaches in customer contracts.


"The issue of software censorship needs to be resolved in a comprehensive manner, ensuring that the IT sector is afforded every opportunity to compete and grow; such barriers need to be removed through collective action from all concerned authorities," says Dr. Fawaz H. Zu'bi, Minister of Post and Communications and chairman of the REACH Advisory Council.

REACH believes that the opening of sealed software packages may void the products warranty and vendors could incur financial losses as consumers refuse to accept opened goods.


'Jordan can remove hurdles that hinder the growth of the sector thereby improving the business climate for technology vendors and encouraging them to continue to do business with Jordanian companies,' adds Dr Zu'bi.


The REACH Advisory Council is a public-private board overseeing the development the information technology industry in Jordan.

The Council is comprised of members from the public and private sector and headed HE Dr. Fawaz Zu'bi, Minister of Post and Communications.
