Facebook to restore news content in Australia

The Australian government has agreed to amend the law aimed at forcing tech giants to pay media outlets for their content.

Facebook announced on Tuesday February 23 the lifting “In the next few days” the blocking of news content in Australia, the government having agreed to amend the law aimed at forcing the tech giants to pay the media for the resumption of their content.

Australian Finance Minister Josh Frydenberg and Facebook Australia Managing Director Will Easton said they had found a compromise on one of the key points of this text to which the US giants of the sector are fiercely opposed.

«With these changes we can now work to continue our investment in public service journalism and restore Facebook news to Australians in the coming days.Said Will Easton.

Last week, Facebook blocked the publication of links to news articles and media pages nationwide. Several official rescue service Facebook pages were also unintentionally affected. This retaliatory measure sparked indignation in Australia as well as in many countries.

The compromise means that the behemoths Facebook and Google – particularly targeted by this bill – should not be punished as long as they make deals with media outlets in exchange for the use of their content.
