Fedora is a global community, not company, published under free license for fredom of computers.
Fedora has many many mirrors around the world, nobody can ban it to reach anywhere.
Also this law is under restudy, Due to War in Syria.
forge and many websites that banned them-contents for Syrian IPs, now
these contents are allowed and open for Syria, also Youtube before 3
years we need proxies to reach it, Now It's open.
I can't show Fedora out of Freedom under any name, or any stuation.
