This is awesome!

Not being a lawyer, I have no idea, but how effectively could a non-US-
resident (i.e. somebody who lives in Canada) apply this?  Do the laws
being violated still count if they are to a non US-resident?  Does not
being a US resident weaken the leverage you have over these scum?  I.e.
wouldn't they be more likely to ignore a non-US-resident on the
assumption that such a person is not likely going to bring suit?
