In this question: Export restrictions on programming equipment Adam Davis noted that
Export restrictions is a problem an electrical engineer might have, but it's not an electrical engineering problem - one that can be solved with the correct application electronic design. Therefore it's off topic for this site. Further, export law is complicated enough, and this question broad enough, that even if it were on topic it couldn't be correctly and succinctly answered in a reasonably sized question. You could fill a book with the answer to "Regarding electronic devices and components, where is the line between needing an export license and not needing one?"
We've previously fielded questions about this issue:
The former was similar to the question in question in that it simply asked what the laws are. It got a few answers. It also got quite a few comments about the suitability of this sort of question. The latter two dealt with the implications of ITAR on circuit design, and might be classified differently.
In any case, this is an issue that needs to be dealt with. Should we allow questions like these?
