It's a big paradigm shift in webmaster's mind.
For years we believe it's a sin to scrapt others people site content.
But now, gorg display answer snippes right in the serp so user probably don't need to visit websites anymore. Not to mention other google services in page #1 result.
Later on hot-link images from websites and become universal gallery (currently premiere to some part of Asia visitors).
Next: maybe put ads beside image display?
So, can I also hot-link images from other sites? Since our raw model do it. :)
The big question I need to know is do websites become "back office" support to serve the "front office" (SE), since websites become more and more disappear from customer (internet user).
