Read things more carefully.

"It was a pretty big deal and an unusual situation because there's a prohibition on doing defense work in China, even if it's inadvertent," said Frank Kenlon, who recently retired as a senior Pentagon procurement official and now teaches at American University. "I'd never seen this happen before."
The Government Accountability Office, the investigative arm of Congress, is examining three such cases involving the F-35, the U.S. military's next generation fighter, the documents show.
Your link just proved I was right. It's against Federal law. Read the article, not just the headline.
If one does not have a waiver, for items that need one, then one gets into trouble. IF one has a waiver, why would they get into trouble? Applies to the Dell case too.
Indians have been trained and used to service Apache in A'stan. .................. Waiver.
It is against Federal law, *IF* you *do not have a waiver*. Same as with the Dell laptop/desktop.

However, your first post had an example of "Ohio" - the State of Ohio.
While your second example had India + WTO - that is a Federal issue.
State and federals do not mix and match (with some exception). While what the Feds do could impact other nations (like India), what any State does, it does not matter (unless the two have an agreement) or a waiver. Standard ops since decades.

Come up with a list of Indian companies that have applied and see why they were denied a waiver. Simple.
There are plenty of foreign companies, including Indian, that have "cleared" section (physical), an indicator that they are doing some work in that space. Then there are foreign companies like Accenture, Capgemini, etc, that have spun of companies that are dedicated to Federal work. You will be very, very, very surprised how much cleared work is conducted by foreign companies.
Now, why have no Indian majors spun off I have no clue - something to ask them.
Else follow the rules, get a waiver, and one should plain be fine.
BTW, the USN is looking abroad for small radars for her LCS ships. Indians should apply.
