Bundestag plans hearing on web content copyright bill

Tuesday 18 December 2012 | 11:03 CET | News
Google and German newspaper publishers will appear before a Parliamentary hearing at end-January to debate plans to allow print media in Germany to charge web search engines for displaying links to newspaper stories, reports the Financial Times. The government wants to force online news aggregators such as Google to request permission to publish link to and excerpts of newspapers' online content. The Bundestag has scheduled a public hearing for 30 January 2013. Google has launched a campaign warning that the new Bill could end easy access to information on the internet.
