Geni, you're kinda grasping at straws here. If they wanted to "own"
anyone, they'd be in the process of trying right now. They can't put
this genie back in the bottle anyway, they're not going to fight a
court case that -they might lose- when it'll do no good anyway. I'm
sure there are plenty of sites outside the US happily hosting the key,
and they'll get nothing but laughed at sending C&D's to them.
