Most gTLD operators do business pretty much world-wide, so they aren't
exposed to just U.S. law alone.  Globalization cuts both ways.

In this particular case, the copyright infringement seems to have
targeted mainly content created in the U.S., so it's quite natural
that the U.S. authorities take a particular interest in it.
