   To clarify, you're saying it's not illegal to buy a Naxos Met CD
from a UK web-site (buying in the country where sale is legal) and then
have them ship it to the US. But this isn't the case for items like say,
Cuban cigars. It's just plain illegal to bring them into the US as an
item for sale, no matter where they've come through, such as Canada.

All Cuban products are embargoed in the U.S. You cannot bring in Iranian caviar for the same reason. You cannot import marijuana from anywhere since possession of the product itself is illegal in the U.S. Other products require a license (automatic firearms, radioactive materials). However, that has nothing to do with copyright or trademark, or with the interests of any U.S. holder of any rights.

To the best of my knowledge, British goods are not embargoed in the U.S.
and buying a CD does not require a license. <G>
