Google forced to pay French publishers sk-digitalmarketing

“Google unilaterally decided that it would no longer display article extracts, photographs and videos within its various services, unless the publishers give it to them free of charge.In practice, the vast majority of press publishers have granted Google free licenses for the use and display of their protected content, without negotiation and without receiving any remuneration from Google.”

“We are in discussions with a large number of press publishers in order to increase our support and investments for the benefit of the press sector. We will comply with the decision of the Competition Authority, which we are in the process of analyze, while continuing these negotiations, “said Richard Gingras, vice president of news at Google at AFP.”
