Neither does it to me. It seems to me that it means that if the author
for some reason decides to sue me for breach of license, I have to go
to Amsterdam to protest my innocense.

If all it said was that if I want to sue the author (for what?), then
I must go to Amsterdam, then it would be fine with me.
