Going around NT export restriction

I have one license for NT server which I bought locally 9 months ago. Ever
since the Asian currency crisis, prices of MS products here have soared
high. I've done some surfing and I've determined that it's cheaper if I buy
from the US via CDW ( www.cdw.com ) or some other mail-order stores.

Now I'm in the Philippines and I'm aware of NT's export restrictions. But a
thought came to my mind just now. The reason for the export restriction is
to "keep" all those encryption stuff in NT to only the US and Canada.

Since I already have a copy of NT and I only need a license for another, is
anyone out there confident enough to tell me if I could buy just the
license from the US ?
