ITAR and authors - How to avoid trouble?


1 post in this topic

How do authors avoid running afoul of ITAR?

I want to write a book about a foreign firearm and its ammunition.  The firearm was developed in the 1930s and was produced into the 1940s.  This book will contain a significant amount of technical data.  Do I need to worry about running afoul of ITAR for publishing technical data?  This firearm is a foreign military gun that'd be classified as a DD here in the US under current law.  I'd assume it'd be exempt as an obsolete firearm as being 80-90 years old, being out of service in any military for 70-75 years, etc.  But good intentions combined with assumptions is a fine way to get into a ton of trouble.

Thank you for any help or guidance you can provide.
