Re: Can't agree that printing it out works
Here's the relevant legislation:
§ 120.10 Technical data.
(a) Technical data means, for purposes of this subchapter:
(1) Information, other than software as defined in §120.10(a)(4), which is re- quired for the design, development, production, manufacture, assembly, op- eration, repair, testing, maintenance or modification of defense articles. This includes information in the form of blueprints, drawings, photographs, plans, instructions or documentation.
(2) Classified information relating to defense articles and defense services;
(3) Information covered by an inven- tion secrecy order;
(4) Software as defined in §121.8(f) of this subchapter directly related to de- fense articles;
(5) This definition does not include information concerning general sci- entific, mathematical or engineering principles commonly taught in schools, colleges and universities or informa- tion in the public domain as defined in §120.11. It also does not include basic marketing information on function or purpose or general system descriptions of defense articles.
Freedom of speech has limitations. You can't , for example publish someone else's work and claim no consequences because of freedom of speech. You can't publish someone else's proprietary information you obtained under an NDA and claim freedom of speech makes it ok.
Of course the ruling may come back that none of defcad's stuff is ITAR, that parts of it are, or that all of it is.
