Google may have to pay for news in France

Google has a new headache of what, if anything, should be paid for news.
On Thursday (October 8th) a French court ruled that the search giant had to speak to publishers in the country about paying for their content.
And the judgment could resonate beyond France.
It is forcing Google to talk to publishers and news outlets about royalty rights enshrined in revised EU copyright laws.
They allow publishers to charge a fee from online platforms that display snippets of news.
The messages are separated from last week's promise by the Google parent alphabet.
It is promised to pay publishers $ 1 billion worldwide over the next three years.
However, the French judgment cannot be satisfied with this type of one-off deal. Instead, Google needs to develop a sustainable payment system.
It confirms an earlier decision by the French competition authority that instructed the search engine to negotiate with publishers and agencies.
Google had three months to open talks.
In a statement on Thursday, the Silicon Valley company said it wanted to sign a deal with the publishers and review the verdict.

- Google has new headaches on what to pay for news, if anything. On Thursday, a French court ruled that the search giant had to speak to publishers in the country about paying for their content. And the judgment could resonate beyond France. It is forcing Google to talk to publishers and news outlets about royalty rights enshrined in revised EU copyright laws. They allow publishers to charge a fee from online platforms that display snippets of news. The new ruling differs from the promise made last week by Google parent Alphabet. It promises to pay publishers around the world. $ 1 billion over the next three years.
But the French judgment cannot be satisfied with such a one-time deal. Instead, Google needs to develop a sustainable payment system. It confirms an earlier decision by the French competition authority, which instructed the search engine to negotiate with publishers and agencies. Google had three months to open talks. In a statement on Thursday, the Silicon Valley company said it wanted to sign a deal with the publishers and review the verdict.
