Type in a name of a restaurant in a major metro area (on maps.google.com), then click "more info" next to the restaurant name and see all those snippets, photos, quotes and reviews pulled from different sites.
When I do that, I see a series of annotated links that drive traffic to the featured search results. I'd imagine that most publishers of reviews, etc. are happy to get the additional traffic, and that they'd ban Googlebot with robots.txt if they weren't. (When was the last time you saw a post here by a Webmaster who was angry because Google insisted on providing search referrals?)
