You are misreading the Berne Convention, here.  The license cannot
remove article five, but that doesn't matter, the license is a
permission grant (only).  A claim for illegal copying would occur in
the appropriate court under the Berne Convention, and no choice of law
provision could affect that, since you can simply say you have not
accepted the license.
