Can't do that!
The DMCA notice and take down provisions would force the server to be
shut down. Additionally, we as Canadians could quite legitimately be
found to be breaking US copyright laws AND a Canadian court could easily
agree that the US court has jurisdiction.
If we keep everything Canadian from the ISP to the server to the
individuals doing the work, and we follow Canadian law diligently, then
a Canadian court would be a lot less likely to agree that any US laws
would apply. If our courts agree that the US has no jurisdiction, then
we are under no obligation to defend ourselves in US court.
Lastly, we are not really into this to upset US lawyers. The purpose is
to promote the Canadian public domain and fight to keep it. I'd be just
as happy if the US were physically incapable of accessing the site.
