I can understand that this may borrow the concept and that the book could be dropped anywhere in the world and I agree with that, but then use new characters and a complete new story. Kira is still mentioned (a Japanese play on the word KILLER), Misa is in it, so is L and Watari. This means this is a white washed copy, this is the original story but as if it was never told in Japan ever. There was nothing wrong with keeping it in Japan if they were going to keep the story as the same original one.
