Officials say that gunmen who attacked Mumbai targets communicated by satellite phone, used mobile phones and may have monitored events as the siege unfolded via handheld Blackberry web browsers. The attackers also, allegedly, familiarized themselves with Mumbai streets using satellite images. Google has blurred images, including the White House, in the past.
How this affects the makers of these products is unknown. But even when countries ban one high tech tool, another takes its place so the effectiveness of a ban seems small.
On a side note, and I would be hard pressed to believe this has anything to do with the proposed ban, the complaint comes shortly after India said it would launch its own version of Google Earth.
