When a company moves its manufacturing division from the U.S. to Malaysia to take advantage of the industry-friendly labour laws in that country, they're applauded for their ingenuity.
You're applauding companies that moves jobs out of the US?

On the other hand, when U.S. consumers take advantage of consumer-friendly copyright laws overseas, they're criminals.
Allofmp3 is not the criminals here, it's the US consumers who illegally imports pirated material. If you go to Holland and buy some hashish, the DEA doesn't come after the coffeeshop, but they come after you if you import it to the US. If it's not contaband in the country you bought it, and it is in the US, the only criminal is you if you import it.
