Machine translations are not new work, neither derivatives, as it is
done by machines and not by humans.

Also Google will have a hard time claiming that because some
unidentified person added text or an url to a open service they now has
the right to do whatever they want with the text.

I guess what they try to say in the TOS is that the text will be used to
build the statistical engine and you give Google the right to do so.
That is, they provide the translation and you provide the corrections
which is then released to them.
