Seeing how hostile American politicians of either party are to allowing a global consumer market place to blossom, this is bad news. Consider Russian music sites: just like manufacturers take advantage of lax labor/environmental laws and currency exchange rates, Russian download sites allow consumers to take advantage of lax copyright laws and the purchasing power of euros/dollars. They're objectively legal by the same standards outsourcing is, but the copyright barons cry fowl - and our government is sympathetic to their cries.
