Obviously concerned about secrets that may easily fly off its facilities and R&D centers, Nokia wants to monitor its employees’ email in Finland.
In order to do that, it needs the approval of a law referred to as “Lex Nokia”. But since spying on people’s email is not exactly a constitutional thing to do, the Finnish Parliament might never approve the law.
Well, according to IDG.se, now Nokia is determined to “leave” Finland if it doesn’t obtain what it wants. This means that the country could lose about 16,000 jobs, as well as around 1.3 billion Euros (per year) in tax revenue.
In the next few weeks, the Parliament of Finland should take a final decision regarding the matter. If this won’t be favorable to Nokia, we could witness some pretty unusual moves from the giant handset manufacturer.
