ITAR restricted book?

I'm pretty sure ITAR bans communicating information to foreigners (without green cards?) even if they're present in the US. There appears to be a similar rule for EAR ("deemed exports"). So restricting shipping to US addresses seems insufficient to comply with ITAR or EAR if there's any restricted info. IIUC ITAR and EAR have exceptions for published information sometimes - they might be relying on that? The restriction to US might simply be because selling the book in lots of countries would require spending a lot of money on lawyers to verify compliance with the equivalent of ITAR and other applicable laws for every country. No point spending thousands of dollars on lawyers for a few sales at $50 each.

I just ordered the book, and it came with free shipping. Maybe they didn't want to figure out shipping outside the US, and so restricted sales to US addresses.

I think it's just the headaches of global distribution and maybe even publisher limitations. There's no way any of that content is ITAR-sensitive.

Yeah, they probably don't want to do the paperwork or pay for global distribution this time for a print on demand book with a limited print run.

 has been kicking renovations at Launch Complex 16 into overdrive in the past two weeks.

Satellite images show large amounts of land clearing around the site in preparation to support upgrades for its Terran R rocket.

📍 Welcome to the Wormhole, home of #TerranR, designed and built in #SpaceBeach, Ca. Formerly housing the historic Boeing C-17 factory, now it's where you'll see Terran R exit the building.

Big LV to be shipping from long Beach. Being interesting to see logistics involved.
Shouldn't need to ship too many boosters but will require US for each launch until reuseable one is operational.

The company said that it would ship rockets from Long Beach to Mississippi (for testing) via. the Panama Canal.  Hope the canal is open when needed!
