Canonical is "Registered" in the Isle of Man, their main offices are in
London.

Ubuntu (and Debian) "get away with it" because their U.S. servers do not
offer software the US government deems illegal as that has legal
implications for their project and developers. However, those in the US
can configure their apt-sources to download from servers outside of the
U.S. That, however, possibly puts the individual in a less than
desirable position.
