No, not automatically. The court considered in the TRO that the fact that
the defendant's website was targeting US customers was a key in deciding to
apply the "long arm" statute.

Thanks for the pointer to the settlement news article, John. 
I do think though, that the prospect of expensive litigation in a foreign
jurisdiction is a pretty intimidating inducement for a "settlement".

If this become the rule in reverse hijacking cases, I may well mean that
non US registrants will think twice about doing business with a registrar
located in the US.
