America is so fucking stupid, I hope this leads to brain drain.

Well sort off, there are lots of clever Americans too but they don't appear to have much pull in the halls of power these days.

That's definitely what will happen.
I don't know what the effect will be, the philosophical conviction and ethical principles for open technology are very American. Europeans have to an extend adopted those as well but see it more in terms of fair market competition and consumer rights.
It's difficult to gage how the Chinese see it. I think they consider companies that open source their tech as the industry leader/master and those that copy it as the industry follower/apprentice.
