I am from India and would like to register a domain name for a health site with TLD ".us" . Is there any legal issue associated with this?

According to Wikipedia article on .US
Under .US Nexus Requirements .US domains may be registered only by the following qualified entities:
* Any United States citizen or resident, * Any United States entity, such as organizations or corporations, * Any foreign entity or organization with a bona fide presence in the United States
To ensure that these requirements are met, NeuStar frequently conducts "spot checks" on registrant information.
To prevent anonymous registrations that do not meet these requirements, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration has ruled that registrants of .us domains may not secure private domain name registration .
Registrants are required to provide complete contact information without omissions.
