A WebmasterWorld thread has BingDude, an official Microsoft Bing representative explaining the rational for this:

Folks have to keep in mind that Bing is a decision engine, focused on "task completion". We've stated this from the outset, so trying things like these types of tests help us determine if this type of SERP behaviour strikes a positive or non-positive note with searchers.

How can I get Bing to license my content? And do I want them to? At least they aren't just scrapping it and showing it to users without paying for it.

Forum discussion at WebmasterWorld.

Update: This actually is not new, Matt covered this at SEL back in 2010.
