---- Why does Google AdSense sponsor "scraper" spam sites

All the talks about the DMCA is of course interesting, but only applies to the US and a few other countries. If I decide my scraper site to be in a country like China chances are very small that I will ever being sued for taking snippets from other sites for my static directory scrapers.
Therefore I think the DMCA discussion is theoretical and ethical correct, but not a real solution for the practical problem of scraper sites on the internet at this moment. I have never heard of a court case against a scraper site, but please correct me if I am wrong.
It's called taking away their incentive. If the SE's drop them and AdSense drops them over DMCA complaints - they get no traffic and lose their revenue source. You don't need to go to court for anything.
