Google must pay 500 million euros in the dispute over the handling of performance rights of news agencies and large newspapers in France.
The antitrust authority imposed the penalty because the search engine has violated interim measures after its view.
The authority had asked Google to include serious negotiations with all publishers on compensation for their content within three months, which demanded.
But that did not happen, said community chef Isabelle da Silva. The US Group must now make suggestions within two months as he wants to pay the content providers for the use of their news. Otherwise there are another 900,000 euros penalty – per day. Google criticized, the authority ignore the efforts for a solution.
