Publisher: "You are stealing our content by publishing short summaries in results."
G!: "You can use robots.txt to opt-out"
Publisher: "No, it should be opt-in. And your summaries cause us to lose traffic."
G!: "But we send you tons of traffic."
Government: "'If you show summary, you have to pay"
G!: "Ok, we won't show summaries anymore"
Publisher: "By removing summaries and only show headline links, our traffic dropped by almost half! Government, please help."

Summaries were supposed to cause loss of traffic because people theoretically read the summary and don't visit the site. Well, they ran that experiment and apparently the summaries seem to  drive more click throughs, not less.

And what do they want the government to do? Mandate the showing of summaries, and therefore, mandate payment? Hey, you're stealing my content! I demand the government instead, force you to buy it, I don't want you to stop using it.
