Re: Export licence

Remember all those stories about hacking and security tools being exported to [choose your repressive Middle East state here] who then used them to repress 'rebellious' citizens? The government will want to keep this sort of thing under control...

You are mistaken. These were security tools duly licensed and exported under full cognizance of said government, and fuck the people ending up in torture chambers. "Keep it under control" they would. To tax the sale.
