Two fragments from your comments reveal the same parochial attitude.

Sure. You have no involvement with the vast majority of nations on
this planet, not now or ever. They simply don't exist, as far as
you're concerned.

Good for you. Your vision doesn't extend past the horizon.

It might come as a real surprise to you to learn that your "State
license" will have absolutely no effect on off-shore spam operations.

But I forgot: you ignore most of the world's existence.

It wouldn't occur to you that a license or law drafted in the United
States would have no standing in that vast part of the world you're
not aware of.
