The lawsuit didn't "stop headline scraping". The two parties agreed that one would stop scraping the other. It has no wider implications than that. The next company on the receiving end of a lawsuit may choose to fight. Even then, a concrete precedent may not be set, since there are shades of gray between quoting, citing, scraping, etc. In any case, your headline sucked.
