As was commented earlier ITAR certainly does makes it tricky when try to sell something to an American customer who isn't allowed to tell you what they want. 

Am I right in thinking the penalty for a US citizen who incorrectly interprets ITAR and inadvertantly breaches it can be a 4 figure fine or jail term ?  

I infer from previous comments on this list that ITAR also prevents detailed discussion of an amateur satellite via an email list that is open to non-US citizens and might also impact on a Wiki or articles written by US Nationals in publications such as the AMSAT Journal.
