Google’s deal to buy news in France includes metrics such as the volume of daily articles published, monthly traffic, or contributions to political and official information.
Google and the French Press Association (APIG) announced that they have reached a common framework of agreement. Accordingly, Google will pay editors to buy online content. Before that, Google only signed separate agreements with some of the leading French newspapers, such as Le Monde or Le Figaro.

APIG and Google have yet to disclose how much money may be allocated to member editors, including national and local newspapers. Of course, the details on how to calculate the bill of targets have not been revealed.
Anyway, this is still positive news after months of negotiations between Google, French news agencies and news agencies on how to apply provisions in the revised European Union (EU) copyright law.
New EU law allows newspaper editors to require online platforms to pay a fee when displaying their news.
In this regard, Australia is drafting a bill that will force Facebook and Google to pay money to buy news from the media. Under the bill, Google and Facebook will be subject to a purchase price if they cannot reach a commercial agreement with the Australian media.
