STORY CORRECTION: Wassenaar agreement does not apply to free software

There is, therefore, no need to move development of encryption
software to non-Wassenaar agreement countries as called for in our
earlier
story
.

The Free Software Foundation web
site
has published the following correction:

“New information regarding the Wassenaar agreement indicates
that the information we posted here on the 11th of December was a
false alarm. An attentive reader pointed out to us that The
Wassenaar agreement will not be applied to free software.”
