ventrilo-server LEGAL restricted export query

I just wanted to query the LEGAL status of ventrilo-server. LEGAL states that 
it is restricted due to export control. My understanding is that there is now 
no export restriction relating to any OpenSSL encryption algorythm. I do not 
therefore believe any restrictionfor ventrilo-server could be sustained on 
those grounds.

Whether or not a restriction relating to commercial use of ventrilo-server is 
sustainable also seems to be of doubtful authenticity.

I wonder if someone could please check out whether any LEGAL restrictions on 
the ventrilo-server port are sufficiently strong to justify the currently 
worded notice in LEGAL.
