That doesn't pass the common sense test, but it's still true. I seem to remember there being an exemption for software that meets certain conditions of being widely available, free, and in source code form. In fact, the very existence and non-U.S. origin of GNUPG had something to do with that provision being included in the regulations. Still, if you're a business, I'd consult a lawyer. It might be easier to provide an easy download mechanism in your product. Tony -- Anthony E.
