AbstractSince 1979, the U.S. Federal Government has frequently acted in the name of national security to impose restraints on important aspects of the scientific endeavor, especially to limit the sharing of knowledge and the export of "militarily useful" technologies. The author discusses how this is is allowed under the First Amendment.
