The Guardian: Greens may back forcing Facebook and Google to pay for news if ABC is included

The Guardian: Greens may back forcing Facebook and Google to pay for news if ABC is included. “The Greens have signalled they could support a code to force Google and Facebook to pay for the value they receive from the distribution of Australian journalism if it is extended to cover the ABC, and if the Coalition comes up with a rescue package for the news wire service [Australian Associated Press].” ABC in this case is the Australian Broadcasting Association.
