Google to drop news article snippets in France after copyright law takes effect

Wednesday 25 September 2019 | 15:40 CET | News
Google announced that it will stop showing snippets of news articles on Google News in France from the end of October, when the new copyright law comes into effect there. This is because the new EU copyright directive requires the company to pay publishers for using their news, something Google said would skew its search results and harm its impartiality.
