See the example of Sourceforge:

"In its terms of use, SourceForge states that its services are not
available to users in countries on the sanction list of the U.S. Office
of Foreign Assets Control (including Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan and
Syria). Since 2008, access to the secure server (used for making
contributions to the site) has been blocked for people from those
countries. As of January 2010, all access including downloads was
blocked for those users. This meant that all people whose IP addresses
appear to belong to those countries were prevented from using the site.
A month later, the restrictions were relaxed so that individual projects
could indicate whether or not their software should be blocked.
Crimea has been blocked since 1 Feb 2015."
