It makes it convenient for *one* copyright holder, maybe, depending
whether the legal systems actually consider choice of venue clauses.

It makes it inconvenient for users and debian-legal, needing to
know local absurdities of Seaforth or whereever's court procedures.
Does anyone know how Berlin's courts treat choice-of-venue clauses?

By the way, are all choice-of-venue licences incompatible with
each other, even CDDL and CDDL-star?
