Federal Government Can't Just Allow 3D Gunmaking Software To Proliferate Without a License, Federal Judge Declares


Various states sued to stop the feds from allowing such gun-making files to circulate legally. Now, a federal judge says the decision to not prohibit them was "arbitrary and capricious."

Western District of Washington

This week, Judge Robert A. Lasnik of U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington, in deciding on motions for summary judgment in that suit, State of Washington et al. v. U.S. Department of State et al., agreed that removing those files from the USML was unlawful based on the APA arguments (though not the 10th Amendment ones), and reversed the federal government's choice to allow free distribution of the files.

This ruling is a prime example of elevating adminstrative regulations over the 1A. Hopefully it gets crushed on appeal.

When TV shows are routinely available immediately after airing (and sometimes before) at numerous sites for anyone who cares to look, you have to be dumber than a box of rocks to think there is any prayer of controlling information on the internet.

Screw that, when Hollywood movies are on Piratebay or whatever it's called before even being released then the genie's REALLY out of the bottle...
