This ugly mess isn't really the entire USA's fault. Every country will have some good people, and some complete a-- holes. The problem is that, in this case, the a-- holes have gotten enough power to screw everyone with only a small amount of power abuse (to my knowledge, only Fengtao has been sued).
Imagine what will happen if they decide this incident was "successful". They would probably campaign to give DRM crackers the death sentence. "You cracked our 'protection' software, so we'll crack open your skulls".
