Who had ICANN suing a German registrar over GDPR and Whois? Congrats, it's happening

"The defendants might well point it out to the courts and the court would then note it in the judgement."

Yup - and from that point forward, even if ICANN tried to bring cases in non-GDPR jurisdictions they'd fail.

You're absolutely right that contracts can't trump law and that would be the first plank of any defence, however pointing out that ICANN haven't historically been bothered about enforcing accuracy makes a mockery of their demands now - and that's a pretty good supporting plank.
