Not "now". Debian (and I think every other distribution) has been
distributing software with this kind of licenses for years, without any
apparent ill effect on users.

And do not forget that there are many places (e.g. California) which
allow big companies (e.g. the MPAA or Adobe) to sue there people from
other states or countries (e.g. people accused to violate the DMCA)
without even the need for a license... If you look at the big picture,
choice of venue clauses are not much important.
