This is the thin end of the wedge. A domain name is nothing more than a right to use that name. Juristiction should be down to the physical location of where the site is hosted, or where the site owner is located.
If I buy a new company name and logo rights from America and use this illegally I would not expect to face American courts but those in the country the server resides, or where the plaintiff is located.
Will non US companies be required to pay US taxes from .com domains? Where will this end?
I'm not against going after pirates and other illegal acts but the issue of juristiction is frought with problems after this ruling.
