California: San Jose Computer Firm Fined For Selling To Iran

Via NBC11.com.

A San Jose computer firm pleaded guilty and was fined $150,000 Monday for selling computer parts to Iran in 2001 and 2002 outside of lawful export controls, the U.S. Department of Justice announced Tuesday.

Super Micro Computer admitted that between Dec. 28, 2001 and Jan. 29, 2002, it received $27,600 for 300 of its P4SBA+ motherboards, which were shipped to an intermediary in the United Emirates, which then transferred the items into Iran. A motherboard is the central circuit board making up complex electronic systems such as computers.

I am sure the authorities have handled this case delicately and it is high time all of us started following the rules and regulation strictly.Money is an issue,i do agree but not at the expense of law.
