They don't. That's what our lawyer told us when we received a similar letter (we're based in Canada).
Note that the letter that we received had another letter attached, which basically we'd be nice boys and stop doing anything remotely looking like Tetris, telling us that there would be no lawsuits or anything if we signed that letter and sent it back.
Our lawyer told us that while the cease-and-desist has to be issued by a lawyer in the same country as the recipient, as a general rule, that (in Canada, at least) signing the attached letter and returning it, though, would be considered a contract, and would be applicable!
So we just ditched it in a garbage can and never heard from them again.
