BREAKING: DefCAD.org is COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN!!!

ALERT: Cody Wilson's DefCAD.org Shut Down! Gets State Dept/DoD's ITAR Restriction Notice!

Cody Wilson is on AJ show, LIVE. As of 11:07am PST, Thurs, May 9, 2013, while other pages at DefCAD.org seems to be working, the Liberator Page is SHUT DOWN the entire DefCAD.org is SHUT DOWN!!!

Cody's saying he WILL comply with the shut down, for the time being, as he consults with his legal team.

The Statist thugs are 'requesting' specifically, either he 'opts in, to their jurisdiction' (he is a licensee, so technically that is exactly what he 'agreed' to) or DefCAD.org is being SHUT DOWN, with the caveat that as long as 'those' specific files aren't made publicly available.

At the time of this post, DefCAD.com, the no take-down 3D print file search engine site, is still up, but busy.

Cody on the AJ show, was reading off the direct notice sent to him from State Dept arm in charge of ITAR 'regulations.'

If successful, this can have a far reaching precedence for ALL global internet and file exchanges, IP, and 'thought' freedoms in general.

Here's a Wiki Summary on ITAR:

International Traffic in Arms Regulations

International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) is a set of United States government regulations that control the export and import of defense-related articles and services on the United States Munitions List (USML).[1] These regulations implement the provisions of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA), and are described in Title 22 (Foreign Relations), Chapter I (Department of State), Subchapter M of the Code of Federal Regulations. The Department of State Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) interprets and enforces ITAR. Its goal is to safeguard U.S. national security and further U.S. foreign policy objectives.[2] The related Export Administration Regulations (Code of Federal Regulations Title 15 chapter VII, subchapter C) are enforced and interpreted by the Bureau of Industry and Security in the Commerce Department. The Department of Defense is also involved in the review and approval process. Physical enforcement of import and export laws at border crossings is performed by Customs and Border Protection, an agency of the Department of Homeland Security.

For practical purposes, ITAR regulations dictate that information and material pertaining to defense and military related technologies (for items listed on the U.S. Munitions List) may only be shared with U.S. Persons unless authorization from the Department of State is received or a special exemption is used.[3] U.S. Persons (including organizations) can face heavy fines if they have, without authorization or the use of an exemption, provided foreign (non-US) persons with access to ITAR-protected defense articles, services or technical data.[4]

The U.S. Munitions List changes over time. Until 1996–1997, ITAR classified strong cryptography as arms and prohibited their export from the U.S.[5] Another change occurred as a result of Space Systems/Loral's conduct after the February 1996 failed launch of the Intelsat 708 satellite. The Department of State charged Space Systems/Loral with violating the Arms Export Control Act and the ITAR.[6][7] As a result, technology pertaining to satellites and launch vehicles became more carefully protected.
