Lets see... if you or I, as webmasters and business owners:
Completed market research to find our audience
Paid good money (or did it on our own sweat and labor) to have great content created
did all the legwork of getting quality website advertisers
Found ways to attract more advertisers and create an income to sustain our business, families, and employees with.
Then Google came along, and simply because we didn't stop them... took our hard work and content, used it on THEIR websites, plastered advertisements all around it and reported record earnings every quarter, Well, I would be pretty upset!
...wait a minute!
Now that I think about it... if you or I did it, we would be penalized, called a mashup site and possibly even removed from the search index.
