Few days ago we had an accident with one of Russia's most popular bittorrent tracker site, A domain was undelegated from DNS servers by request of our agencies.

SourceForge "removes" ban set at 25.01.2010

It seems like yesterday decided to give up with forced ban(more: SF blog, my post) of Syria, Iran, Sudan, North Korea and Cuba, and now they provide users with option "Export Control", allowing to opt in or opt out for ban.
By default, all projects have that ban enabled.

25.01.2010 a biggest opensource projects hoster, denied access to certain countries, which are Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria(correct me if I missed some). They wrote it on their blog.
SF referred to US law, since this was made to follow it. But the way I see it is quite different.

What they actually did is made problems to legal users from these countries. And the ones that should (probably) be blocked will bypass it just by using proxy.
