Economic Times: Media agencies say Facebook, Google ‘must pay for news’ from which they make millions

Economic Times: Media agencies say Facebook, Google ‘must pay for news’ from which they make millions. “Nine European press agencies, including AFP, called Wednesday on internet giants to be forced to pay copyright for using news content on which they make vast profits. The call comes as the EU is debating a directive to make Facebook, Google, Twitter and other major players pay for the millions of news articles they use or link to.”
