Crypto Ruling and Mozilla

Friday May 7th, 1999

With the latest ruling against crypto-export laws, some of you have been wondering how this applies to Mozilla (if at all). Well, we're not sure, but I bet there are a few developers that would be willing to enlighten us on this subject. If any of you know more about how this ruling affects Mozilla, please respond in the talkback to this item...

While Netscape would be allowed to release the crypto code, doing so would make it virtually useless. -------

What?, it would make it better and able to provide strong crypto out-of-the-box instead of forcing users to DL (illegally? - its in the netherlands) from <> or use cryptozilla.

Why would that make it useless?
