I don't think it will affect me directly in the UK but it might if I do a contract for a US based company. While from a US perspective US law is universal and simply applies everywhere and to everyone by default as it doesn't have, as I understand it, a codified 'limit of jurisdiction'; outside the US the rest of the world doesn't consider US law to matter a jot or effectively to exist at all ontheir territory.
This leads to interesting situations where US companies operating in the UK have to do things here because the US government says they must and will apply the law to them at home if they don't. At the same time potentially the UK government could say they're not allowed to do that here. Now which law do they obey?
In practice as most of both countries laws are cooked up by the same private foundations and international think-tanks anyway so this seldom happens but its an issue for US companies doing business everyewhere else as well.
I've ofen wondered if the simple failure of the founding fathers to mention that US fedaral law only applies within the territorial control of the United States isn't a root cause of a lot of the 'fist fights' the USA ends up in with other governments around the world. Perhaps members more informed about the way things look from the other side of the Atlantic will confirm or deny?
