Australia passes law aimed at making Google and Facebook pay for news content on their platforms

Australia passes law aimed at making Google and Facebook pay for news content on their platforms

  • The legislation had been fiercely opposed by the US tech giants, with Facebook blocking all news content to Australians over the row.
  • Facebook agreed to reverse its decision after robust negotiations with the govt, which led to changes to the law to address some of their concerns. 
  • The law is seen as a test case for similar regulation around the world.
  • The amended legislation - the News Media Bargaining Code - was passed by Australia's House of Representatives after going through the Senate.
