Well said, the 500 or so a day that get filtered into my deleted items folder are mildly annoying, and all our IP ranges are APNIC (not America!). DCMA does not extend outside of the USA, no matter how much spam you send. If you want someone to do something that applies to other countries spend some time bothering to find out what the relevant laws are in those countries.
