GOOGLE MAKES DEALS WITH EUROPEAN NEWS FIRMS

-

Google said Wednesday that it struck licensing deals with 300 news publishers in Europe in its latest effort to comply with a recently introduced European Union copyright law. The tech giant signed the agreements with national, local and specialist news publicatio­ns in Germany, Hungary, France, Austria, the Netherland­s and Ireland and said discussion­s with many others are ongoing. The new law allows search engines to link to and use snippets of news content, while giving publishers new rights when extended previews are used online.
