Re: Export Control

then you are going to get a can of Uncle Sam's Legal Whoop-Ass opened up for you.

That's fine and that is a given. The issue is not the can of Whoop-Ass or its size. The issue is where it is enforced. This demonstrates a major deficiency in pretty much all treaties for legal assistance with the USA. USA can ask a third country to extradite you for nearly anything, and most will.

While nothing can be done in this particular case as it is Canada, an ECHR/ECJ challenge to a USA extradition request on the basis "it is not a crime here, so get lost" is long overdue.
