The Alphabet unit has signed deals with more than 300 publishers in Google, Germany, France and four other EU countries to pay for their news, and the company has told Reuters it will launch a tool to make it easier for others to sign up.
The move, which will be announced later on Wednesday, comes three years after the EU adopted copyright laws on landmarks that force Google and other online platforms to pay musicians, artists, writers, news editors and journalists to use your work.
News publishers, some of Google’s fiercest critics, have long called on governments to ensure that online platforms pay fair compensation for their content. Last year, Australia made such payments mandatory, and Canada introduced a similar law last month.
“So far, we have contracts with more than 300 national, local and specialist news outlets in Germany, Hungary, France, Austria, the Netherlands and Ireland, and further discussions are under way.” That said, it is expected to be published later on Wednesday.
The blog does not specify how much the editors will be paid.
Two-thirds of the group are German publishers, including Der Spiegel, Die Zeit and Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.
“We are now announcing a new tool for auctioning thousands of news publishers, starting in Germany and Hungary, which will expand to other EU countries in the coming months. Come on, ”Connell said in a blog post.
The tool offers publishers an extended news preview agreement that allows Google to display snippets and thumbnails for a license fee.
