Iain Posted May 21, 2006 Share Posted May 21, 2006 Hi everyone I saw the episode of Hak5 TV when a number of "USB goodies" were discussed. An extensive list was published subsequently. I intended downloading these and playing around to see which I like and saw comments on the puTTY site about it being illegal in some countries. I was surprised, but I'm not familiar with the software. It said that the legal problem relates to the fact that it deals with encryption. Doesn't everyone use encryption at some time - whether making a purchase from eBay or viewing their online Bank Statement? Are these the same as that which is involved with puTTY or am I completely off track? If they are the same, is it illegal in some countries to use a PC for these reasons? Furthermore, I've seen world maps to say whether it's illegal in some countries and whether it's illegal to export or import. What on earth does that mean?
