Although I don't know anything about licensing, wouldn't this mean a
company could, for example, publish software under a license that states
that disputes must be resolved in some theoretical country that bans all
free sharing of software (even if the owner wants to share it), then sue
somebody who's modified the ostensibly free software for copyright
infringement, winning because the country forbids any software sharing,
and still have the license count as free?

I'm probably misunderstanding this; surely there wouldn't be such a
gaping hole in the FSF's free license definition?
