>> 1., First Amendment defines free speech. Source code has been proven
>> free speech. Executables are not covered by free speech

>this statement is illogical.

As Laura Jennings states in http://www.lexpoetica.net/lex/lex_technica.html:

"while a2 + b2 = c2 may be illegal, the statement that the square of the
hypotenuse of a right triangle is equal to the sum of the square of its
sides may be just fine".


To understand what has been happening in the U.S. with the legal status of
"source code", "object code" and executables,
there are, IMHO, some key documents to read:


1.  Junger v. US Dept. of State  -
http://www.eff.org/Legal/Cases/Junger_v_DoS/

2.  Bernstein v. U.S. Department of Justice  -
http://www.eff.org/Privacy/ITAR_export/Bernstein_case/

3.  DVD-CCA v. Bunner and DVD-CCA v. Pavlovich  -
http://www.eff.org/IP/Video/DVDCCA_case/

4. Digital Millennium Copyright Act  -

Happy reading!
