Netmeg one incentive that comes to mind really quickly without giving this thing much thought is if google rivals decide to comply and pay for use of snippets whereas google decides not to, they could loose more searchers to the other engines. I guess it depends on how much Germans love to see newspaper snippets in SERPs. I'm only throwing this out as a high level train-of-thought as to where things might lead. There are probably others here who could see other peripheral consequences for those who don't conform.
