There are laws in place for determining the *appropriate* venue. If
California really is the appropriate venue for the suit, as determined
by the law, then that's fine. If the appropriate venue is Massachusetts,
or somewhere else, then that's where it should be. Choice of venue
attempts to override this mechanism, to always favor the copyright holder.
