Quite smart to do it in Germany

Considering Germany has probably some of the strictest privacy laws in the EU (apparently a lot of criticism of the GDPR in Germany is that it doesn't go far enough) it is quite clever to start this case in Germany. If ICANN's position holds up in a German court it will likely hold up in any EU court and perhaps even the CJEU.
