There are two assumptions here that are wrong:
. US residents can only be sued in US courts.
. US courts can only decide on US copyright law.
Speaking of which, are there any cases in which a US court has made a
decision based on a non-domestic law (in a situation where that law applied
and the US law did not)? If there are did the court rule based on precedent
set by the courts native to that law?
If a US court is deciding a case based on a non-dometic law, and that law is
from a civil-law country, should the US court rule based on precident set
by the courts native to that law despite the fact that those courts do not
rule based on precident, or should the US court rule based on the written
law as the courts which are native to the law would?
