Amicus brief of the American Assoc. for the Advancement of Science

Provides several more reasons why the crypto export controls are unconsitutional, including violation of the 5th and 14th Amendments and of the Constitutution's "penumbral" privacy guarantees. Very interesting additional arguments that examine not only the rights of the plaintiff, but of his audience, of the scientific community, and and of all potential recipients of plaintiff's encryption software.
