Canada says Google will pay $74 million annually to Canadian news industry under new online law

Associated Press

TORONTO (AP) — Canada’s government says it has reached a deal with Google for the company to contribute $100 million Canadian dollars annually to the country’s news industry. That’s to comply with a new Canadian law requiring tech companies to pay publishers for their content. The agreement removes a threat by Google to block the ability to search for Canadian news on Google in Canada. Facebook and Instagram parent company Meta already has been blocking Canadian news since earlier this year. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the deal is going to resonate around the world as countries deal with the same challenges that Canada’s media landscape is facing.
