It depends how you look at it.

By the trivial action of moving the planet hosting offshore you show
that these laws are easily circumvented. You don't risk being fined. You
don't have to censor your members.

You show that bad government policy has potential negative impacts such
as sending money and jobs overseas but is also trivially circumvented
and ineffectual.
