Might be able to get out of trouble if they have a disclaimer saying it'* not for road use, off-road only, like a lot of modding stuff, VHT, exhaust items, lights, etc...

Probably too late for that, even if it would help. But, I bet the idea of defeating the emissions control in and of itself is probably illegal no matter what

And, for those afraid to click a link at work

Federal Settlement Targets Illegal Emission Control “Defeat Devices” Sold for Autos

Same link, just now you at least know the headline

Those that have these already now have an investment. They'll triple in price.

Now what is the DOJ or the EPA going to do when they start making these in China?

You can't control it. There would be no effective enforcement. Not in the internet age.
