That's not even necessary. You just have to set your DNS to a non-US one.

I guess it depends on where the root servers are physically located. I admit I haven't investigated this.

Edit: Since U.S.-based registrars will be required to blacklist the records too, it won't matter where you're located.

IOW, this will eventually affect the entire world.
