Can someone please set out the arguements against caching.
The traditional use of a title and description in search engine listings falls under "fair use."
The search engine is not reprinting or redistributing the page. It is simply producing an excerpt.
The content of this web-site—graphics, text and other elements—is © Copyright 2002 by Company Name, Inc., and may not be reprinted or retransmitted in whole or in part without the expressed written consent of the publisher.
That copyright notice (or a variation of it) exists on millions of pages in Google's index. Google ignores that notice and proceeds to reprint and retransmit the page without obtaining the required written consent.
