Sydney Morning Herald: Google is acting the bully in fight over new media code

Sydney Morning Herald: Google is acting the bully in fight over new media code. “Treasurer Josh Frydenberg has rightly said that Google did itself a disservice by its threat. Big Tech, for all its wealth, depends on the support of its tens of millions of users. If Google were to leave Australia, it could find Australians happily migrate their online searches to rivals such as Yahoo, Bing and DuckDuckGo. As their power and influence has grown, Google and Facebook find themselves being asked to act with greater care and responsibility towards the democracies that have allowed them to flourish. They should not place themselves above elected governments.”
