let's be honest here: you knew, or should've known it's copyrighted; it came from Google's site. I still think a journalist has the right (and sometimes the duty) to do it, but let's not pretend. :)3
Google is a for profit corporation that is in the business of making money. It sucks for us, but if they think that a "sandbox" is needed to keep making money, that's what will happen. Google needs to make money and satisfy it's shareholders who put $billions into Google. That's the reality and being "transparent" is not a smart move.
