I think of VGMdb as a sort of very useful, lightly-warez website.
I think it's a question of incentive to purchase. And merely providing scans of the booklets, etc isn't going to make people refrain from buying in the same way as providing music files will.

That's not to say I'm completely fine with providing scans in the way we do, and ultimately it would be nice to know how publishers feel about it.
