Google proposes amendments to Australia's Media Bargaining Code

Monday 25 January 2021 | 15:38 CET | News
Google Australia's managing director Mel Silva has appeared at a public hearing of the Senate Economics Legislation Committee that is reviewing a proposed new law, the News Media Bargaining Code. At the public hearing on January, Silva said Google is committed to achieving a workable News Media Bargaining Code. Google also believes that, "in its current form, the Code remains unworkable and if it became law would hurt not just Google, but small publishers, small businesses, and the millions of Australians that use our services every day".
