I live in the Netherlands and I received a book I ordered from a company in the US. The package I received today had an invoice included. The invoice had the following text printed on it:
These items are controlled by the U.S. government and authorized for export only to the country of ultimate destination for use by the ultimate consignee or end-user(s) herein identified. They may not be resold, transferred, or otherwise disposed of, to any other country or to any person other than the authorized ultimate consignee or end-user(s), either in their original form or after being incorporated into other items, without first obtaining approval from the U.S. government or as otherwise authorized by U.S. law and regulations.
It is obvious that I need approval from US authorities to give my book to a friend in living in Belgium and probably also to give my book to a friend in the Netherlands. How do I get approval?
