The technology I work on has such restrictions. Similar things happened in India, they refused to sign a end user agreement to not make weapons technology with it. There was also a machine I know about, always wondered about contacting BIS about it.

Mumbai, Nov. 1: Videsh Sanchar Nigam (VSNL) will acquire Tyco Global Network, a US major with a newly laid 60,000-kilometre cable network, for Rs 600 crore ($130 million).

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius

In response to the thread, why are we worried if China builds a copter? Anything I've owned that was made in China has broken within the first year of ownership.
