Well, that’s not generally what ISOC does, but hypothetically, it’s unlikely that their US incorporation would preclude them from work in those countries, should they want to do so.  PCH is also incorporated in the US, and we’ve worked in both countries, as well as other countries under US sanctions, always with OFAC clearance.  For us, it’s not been a problem because we weren’t doing work for, or to principally benefit, the governments of those countries.  Hosting a ccTLD or building an IXP or getting a CERT going, for instance, the things we do, are services to the people, the public, rather than the government.  I think it’s also helpful that we offer the services globally, and not just to specific parties.

But anyway, that’s about us rather than about ISOC, so not really to the point of this particular conversation.
