Meta threatens to pull news to avoid paying publishers

Η Meta, ο όμιλος κοινωνικών μέσων ενημέρωσης, παλαιότερα γνωστός και σαν Facebook, απειλεί να αφαιρέσει τις ειδήσεις από τις πλατφόρμες του, εάν οι ΗΠΑ υιοθετήσουν νόμο που θα τον ανάγκαζε να διαπραγματευτεί με τους εκδότες για να πληρώσει το περιεχόμενό τους.


If this sounds familiar, your memory is correct: Australia proposed just such a law in 2021. Facebook pulled news from its platform for a few weeks, but then returned to the negotiating table and agreed to pay only local news outlets.

Η κυβέρνηση της Αυστραλίας υποστήριξε ότι το περιεχόμενο των εκδοτών ειδήσεων έχει αξία για την οποία το Facebook και η Google δεν πλήρωναν και υποστήριξε ότι θα έπρεπε να το κάνουν στέλνοντάς τους χρήματα που θα χρηματοδοτούσαν τις δραστηριότητές τους.

The law on competition and preservation of journalism of the United States in 2022 has similar goals but focuses on small issuers (companies with fewer than 1.500 employees). The aim of the new bill is to help publishers and broadcasters come together and negotiate with companies like Facebook and Google on the "terms and conditions of the platform's access to digital news content".

The definition of “platform” is online platforms with at least 50 million US-based users, with annual net sales exceeding $550 billion and with at least one billion monthly active users worldwide.
