[liberationtech] Telecommunications to Cuba in New Policies

Thanks, Collin!

I was starting to look at those things yesterday, but wanted to see if
there was a "shortcut" that would save me from having to sift through
bureaucratic red tape doc piles.. :-)

The situation is that of a Cuban Maestro in the US for a concert, wanting
to purchase this type of equipment and stuff for his studio back home,
including Apple gear but possibly also special-purpose hw & sw. Not a
"commercial export.."


Best Regards | Cordiales Saludos | Grato,
