Choice of venue is widely (not quite unanimously) considered non-free,
so I'm curious: why are you suggesting that *lack* of choice of venue
is a problem?

"No Recipient will bring a legal action under this License more than one year
after the cause of action arose."  That says that legal action must happen
within one year of infringement, not that it must wait for one year.  I
don't know if that's free or not; I also have no idea if it's enforcable.
