Since a counterclaim involves the possibility that the rights claimant 
may go to court, this simply means that you agree to receive any legal 
paperwork in connection with such a case.  The claimant could then send 
it directly to you without going through WMF.

This would be as determined by US law since you are giving jurisdiction 
to US courts.  The claimant can make that claim from anywhere in the 
world. Foreign rights could be protected to whatever extent they are 
recognized by US law.
