That's a terrible mess, and vividly illustrates how such poor compliance
decision-making clobbers a policy that the U.S. is attempting to promote
(both Internet and flights). Protecting Internet access in sanctioned
countries has been a longtime advocacy project of mine, and something that
from a legal perspective there has been pretty considerable success on.
These sorts of case studies are helpful, so please feel free to drop a note
if such issues arise in the future.
