IANAL, but I understand that jurisdiction depends on who, what and
where is involved.  This project is a project of some organisations
and they could be taken to court. Various people work on it and they
could be taken to court if they were involved.

For example, if we issued a libellous statement about someone, many
people could end up in court.  We are not above the law just because
we are working on the debian project (which is a damn shame for some
bad laws like IPRED).

I'm sorry to hear Finnish courts offer so little.
