Google strikes news pay deal with major Australian media company
A news company in Australia and Google have agreed to a deal to have the tech giant pay to have the company’s content displayed in Google’s News Showcase.
The deal comes after Google threatened to shut down its search engine in Australia over the nation’s proposed law that would force tech giants to pay news outlets for their content.
The multimillion-dollar deal between Seven West Media and Google has another 30 days before it becomes official, The Guardian reported. Seven West Media’s chairman, Kerry Stokes, said the deal gives “fair payment” to the company for its content.
Neither Seven West or Google revealed the exact numbers of the deal.
