That's only true if Iranian law recognizes the EULA, which I imagine
would have something to do with recognition of US copyright law.
Maybe the two are completely separate.  I'm not an Iranian lawyer so I
can't say for certain.

My point is that this question can't be answered based on the GPL or
any other contract based on US copyright law.  These documents most
likely have no legal force in Iran.  What's legal for Roozbeh is
defined entirely by the Iranian legal system.
