No, but it would be illegal for the Fedora project to actively try to
distribute into those countries.  The mirrors are supposed to put up a
blurb about not downloading if you're in one of those countries, and/or
blocking IPs from those areas.  It's not easily policable, but it is
easy to notice the project entering into any kind of business
arrangement or actively helping to distribute into those countries.
