Does A Pentium 4 Need A Weapons License?
    #2848744 - 07/01/04 10:37 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

http://yro.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=04/07/01/1459247&mode=thread&tid=103&tid=137&tid=99

WindBourne writes "It appears to be that the U.S. house of Reps. want to classify Pentium 4 and above CPUs as weapons. This would mean that all these will require export licenses. Apparently, they have not heard about that the far east has developed large CPUs as well that are used in beowulf clusters." According to the article, this clause is unlikely to appear in the final version -- but stranger things have happened.

they already consider encryption a weapon.

PGP had to be printed out in code and OCR'd into chinese computers and recompiled in order to be exported out of the US. The US law did not allow for it to be transfered in data form, but a loophole in the law allowed them to do it this way.

I thought computers coming from the US already were required to have export licenses? Am i wrong?
