First of all - majority of users don't use extensions. If 0.1% of people see my content stolen somewhere - fine, take it, I don't care. If 99.9% of users suddenly could see my content on Google - hey, that's a BIG problem.

I can only make out the site logo, the headline of the page, some button text, and an odd word here or there. It's just a contextual image just like the surround text of the search phrase is contextual text.
