And at the risk of glorifying America, I have to say that at least we have a country with laws, and respect for intellectual property!
In places like China, piracy is done openly. No wonder they have so much spam and so many bot-nets there. People are still running ORIGINAL Windows XP from 2001 -- no updates or patches, complete with Internet Explorer 6.0. It's a miracle every single computer in China isn't part of a bot net!
I read that 10% of the computers in the Netherlands are infected and part of a (zombie) bot net.
America has its problems, but at least we're not that low-end. At least not yet.
