Fedora is funded (systems, hardware, bandwidth, etc) by Red Hat, and is considered under
United States and most International law to be a part and parcle of Red Hat, Inc.

Being in the middle east, it's said in the Installation license agreement that you can not use Fedora if you're in one of the US prohibited countries (Syria and others).
This implies that Fedora is considered part of Redhat Inc. under the US law.
I have not used Fedora since about 3 years, but I remember very well this kind of restriction of fedora usage those days and I don't know if they still exist or not.
