I doubt it's about the money.  You can actually sue someone for exploiting you without your knowledge/permission.  These companies tried to make money when I'm pretty sure if they had simply asked nicely, the two would have said "okay, go ahead".  Well, depending on either companys' reputation (both of which are now screwed).

It would be nice for them to donate any winnings to charity..
