As I understand it, the US servers do not export software to those
countries.  However, probably not all of the non-us mirrors check
whether a request originates from Cuba [1].  In that case, the mirrors
would be violating the license (but no law that applies to them).
This is different from what I said before, because I didn't think
about mirrors outside the US redistributing software to Cuba.

Checking for country of origin was a suggestion, not a requirement.
