Expect more such copying of innovative western ideas for social web applications. Eventually, the copied versions might even have a greater number of users. Scary! What if the first 30 results on Google were all pointing to geographically distant sites? Filtering users by their IP is not the perfect solution.

A new problem, and therefore a business opportunity is emerging.
