SO: ... What non US jurisdiction will make it not receive such order?

earn for ICANN immunity from host country jurisdiction. All treaty based
international organisations have that..
SO: As attractive as this may seem and you may be surprised that I also
wish this were possible but I think we must also face the reality of what
it takes to get such treaties? especially the duration. ICANN serves the
global community, so what will the implications be for the countries that
does not sign the treaties? how does ICANN maintain its current
multistakeholder nature if founded on such treaties?. I think this is just
a matter of priorities; we should weigh which is more important than the
other and I think preservation of the multistakeholder nature of ICANN,
it's openness and it's structure is of importance than the threat of
jurisdiction which doesn't happen often (and only affects a scenario when
it happens).
