France fines Google because it does not compensate media for their content

France has once again penalized Google with a millionaire's fine. It appears that Google did not negotiate in good conscience compensation for media related rights. This is French law. French authorities sanctioned the American company by imposing 500 million euros on it. This amount could be increased to 900,000. euros for every day that it delays. Within two months, the company must submit a remuneration proposal to news agencies and publishers for the use its content.

This decision is important for the entire European Union as France was the first to transfer the 2019 European Directive on related rights to national legislation. The EU may be affected by the outcome of this dispute. The dispute stems from the fact that the media, who are affected by the decline in advertising subscriptions, want Google share with them a portion of the economic pie it receives through its news site. The Silicon Valley company argues that Google already receives many visits to its Internet pages and advertising through its news browser.

Google has been the subject of several legal actions in France in recent months. The Competition Authority on June 7, imposed a fine amounting to 220 million euros for its abuse of its dominance in the online advertising marketplace.

After determining that the company had violated European law by blocking advertising by its competitors in online searches, EU antitrust regulators fined it around EUR1.49 Billion.
