On 16 December, this article from Bloomberg Law was made available.  It explained that US export control laws restrict the export of certain goods, technology, information, and services without prior authorisation.  While there are several categories of export controls, the 2 most important are the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).  The vast majority of controlled exports fall under EAR, while the ITAR’s scope is limited to only military and defence-related articles, services, information, and technology.  It reproduces an export control decision tree flowchart and explains how to navigate it.
