Some entity with a foobar.nu domain-of-convenience is quite likely going to find a hard time getting onto a court calendar in Niue unless they have a bit more than a domain name to establish jurisdiction. Similarly for most other countries - the French court system isn't going to want cases dropped on it just because there's a foobar.fr domain involved, unless there's a French citizen or corporation involved - and at that point, the fact that a French citizen or corporation involved will be the biggest point for establishing jurisdiction. Is there *any* court that will actually accept "But alldomains.com sold me a domain name" as sufficient grounds *by itself* for establishing jurisdiction?
