Abuse of power?

A warning for any business that uses an American company for domain name registration. eNom is one of the largest domain registrars in the US with over 5 million domains registered through it. The company was cited in the NYTimes earlier this week for seizing all the domains of a perfectly innocent travel company from the Canary Islands because one of its holiday destinations included Cuba. Clearly is doesn’t matter that the target audience for the travel company was not US citizens (who face travel restrictions for supposedly evil regimes such as Cuba). An abuse of power? Arbitrary restrictions on legitimate businesses that operate outside the US? Be warned!
