Why exactly should they care? It's not as if the US (or other powers, for that matter) ever really cared who is actually being hit by sanctions.
Other countries like e.g. Iran should take a long hard look at this issue. Offering cheap downloads etc. of US intellectual property might be a good way to recoup money held by the US under all sorts of pretexts.
