Unformatted text preview: unch of legislators voted unanimously to do anything. In 1995 Dan Bernstein, with the help of the EFF, sued the U.S. government, seeking to bar the government from restricting publication of cryptographic documents and software [143]. The suit claimed that the export control laws are unconstitutional, an “impermissible prior restraint on speech, in violation of the First Amendment.” Specifically, the lawsuit charges that the current export control process: — Allows bureaucrats to restrict publication without ever going to court. — Provides too few procedural safeguards for First Amendment rights. — Requires publishers to register with the government, creating in effect a “licensed press.” — Disallows general publication by requiring recipients to be individually identified. — Is sufficiently vague that ordinary people cannot know what conduct is allowed and what conduct is prohibited. — Is overbroad because it prohibits conduct that is clearly protected (such as speaking to foreigners within the United States). — Is applied too broadly, by prohibiting export of software that contains no cryptography, on the theory that cryptography could be added to it later. — Egregiously violates the First Amendment by prohibiting private speech on cryptography because the government wishes its own opinions on cryptography to guide the public instead. — Exceeds the authority granted by Congress in the export control laws in many ways, as well as exceeding the authority granted by the Constitution.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
