Australian Law Could Require Google To Pay News Agencies for Article Snippets in Search

Australia

Episode 1764

The Australian Parlament is considering a law that will require search engines like Google to pay news agencies for publishing snippets of articles in their search results. Google says that if the bill becomes law, they may have no choice but to pull Google search out of the continent. Leo says that's not necessarily a bad thing, as it would open up competing search engines like Bing and Duck Duck Go for others to use.
