I understand your point, but Google did put up the money & service to digitize these papers. You can read several articles (c. Sept 2008) announcing their project to enter into an agreement with individual papers to digitize collections. That's where the Journal Sentinel Archive comes from and the Google disclaimer at their site is proof of that. It's the same model that the Mormon's also use/d to get access to records.

Google's step back from the ma$$ive project is a reality check for everyone who thinks this is all "free". Indexing local German language newspapers isn't free either. There may be a new revenue source for these kinds of local projects: court settlement from lawsuits over "data laundering".
