While Debian is an international project, the servers and developers 
have to be located somewhere.  If there are infrastructure servers or
Debian developers working on the appropriate things in Belgium then 
the opinion of the Belgian court might very well apply.

To think Debian, or international organizations in general, are above
all local laws/courts is clear folly.
