Clearly you aren't a very good lawyer. Just a short lesson in International Private Law:
- The choice of law depends, for a suit in tort, on the place where the tort was committed. In this case, I posted via a Dutch ISP, so that would be the Netherlands. As far as I can see, you could want to sue in defamation, or as a copyright violation. Either way, the tort rules apply.
- The choice of forum depends on the normal residence of the defendant. Despite my internship in Brussels, my normal residence is Enschede, the Netherlands.
- Point being, if you want to sue, you have to do it under Dutch law, in a Dutch court.
