Someone should trawl the information in the Rules for Trivia that's hosted in the Trivia Depository and summarize it. Then they should note the recent 10/15 or 20/25 scoring innovation that attempts to compensate for the advantage Google-using teams have over those who rely on more traditional methods (i.e. brains or books).
Here is the standard template of scoring values for a Williams Trivia contest.  Running teams have always been free to amend and improvise, but should not do so capriciously. Many scoring changes have been announced or discussed first on the Trivia listserver.
On-air questions-- 1 point apiece.
 "Three-point plays"-- Occasionally there are two-part trivia questions, or questions with multiple answers (i.e. name all seven Dwarves). In such a case, 1 point might be awarded to teams naming any 4 of the dwarves, or 2 points with an additional 2nd point for naming all seven.
On-air songs-- 1 point apiece. This means title and artist.
