(3) The Inquiry wishes to understand the extent to which your website is based in the UK. Where are your servers located? Do you consider the UK courts to have jurisdiction over the way in which your website is operated in the UK, and how far does this jurisdiction extend?
No physical assets are in the UK, the servers are in the USA. The publisher is a foreign corporation which owns all the intellectual property.It seems to to be a simple matter of fact that the UK courts have no effective jurisdiction over a publisher based overseas with no bricks and mortar in the UK.
None of the many threatened legal actions against the website in the UK has ever succeeded in the UK courts. We have regular communications from most of the leading London legal firms specialising in media law. We have repeatedly ignored injunctions and orders issued in the UK courts with no adverse consequences.
