But it is OK for google to do the same but on a lot larger scale? I 
didn't get those files from any app, I got them from google cache which 
was mirroring them. Why do we have two standards all of a sudden? 

Besides what makes you think that it's not OK to distribute those files? 
The copyright is there, they don't influence anything because they're 
not used by anything and all search engines are already distributing
