Simon, I’ve never been to Thailand nor reviewed its software laws. But in the US, if you distribute open source software that violates the export law of the US, you could go to jail. “Open source” is irrelevant. Copyright law is irrelevant. /Larry

Here is AFL 3.0, section 15:

15) Right to Use. You may use the Original Work in all ways not otherwise restricted or conditioned by this License or by law, and Licensor promises not to interfere with or be responsible for such uses by You.

Please help me understand this. If I were in Thailand and used AFL 3.0 licensed software to publish a call for a republic, would I be in breach of the author's copyright as well as in breach of their lese majeste laws?
