Re: Nightmare Scenario: Public Key Distribution Controlled



Does the following provision of the amendment lighten 
Tim's dim glim?

   " 2804. Encryption products manufactured and intended
   for use in the United States ...

   (d) USE OF PRIOR PRODUCTS LAWFUL.-- After 
   January 31, 2000, it shall not be unlawful to use any 
   encryption product purchased or in use prior to such 
   date.

[Bottom page 13]

That gives about 450 days to widespread stego, surrept 
onions and backchannels to prepositioned stashes. Max
use prior to.

Or, say to hell with it, coders will forever evade USCoders.
