principe d'extension de juridiction
Explanation:
bien que la notion de "long-arm statute" n'ait pas d'équivalent exact en France, le principe d'extension de compétence pour tout ce qui ne serait pas en contradiction avec les lois locales applicables par ailleurs pourrait être invoqué, notamment en matière commerciale il est assez courant d'ajouter une clause d'attribution de juridiction au tribunal dont dépend le siège social du rédacteur des conditions générales ou conditions de vente.

Explanation:
Long-Arm Statute: A State law which allows a State to exert personal jurisdiction over a non-resident for purposes of service of process.
(http://www.wvdhhr.org/bcse/glossary.htm)

Long Arm Jurisdiction

Legal provision that permits one State to claim personal jurisdiction over someone who lives in another State. There must be some meaningful connection between the person and the State or district that is asserting jurisdiction in order for a court or agency to reach beyond its normal jurisdictional border. If a Long Arm Statute is not in effect between two States, then the State must undertake a Two-State Action under the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA) guidelines for certain actions, such as establishing a support order in which the non-custodial parent (NCP) is not a resident. Other actions, such as Direct Income Withholding, are allowed by UIFSA in such a way that neither a Two-State Action nor Long Arm Jurisdiction are required.

Cette loi (OU Ce texte législatif) d'une portée considérable (voir ci-dessous)


Explanation:
le sens de far-reaching, potent; with lots of influence or clout

Cette [La] toute puissante loi californienne....
Le traducteur peut ajouter cette notion très américaine entre crochets [long-arm statute]

Noter que le substantif "statut" ne se dit au sens de loi qu'en parlant de la Grande-Bretagne et des autres autres monarchies constitutionnelles.
