Australia watchdog calls for Google, FB news boycott

May 21, 2020 10:07 IST

Australia's competition watchdog has reportedly asked the local media for a "collective boycott" of Google and Facebook, forcing them to pay for news they put on their platforms. Other ideas put forward in a 33-page 'concept paper' include bilateral negotiations between Australian media organizations and the two tech giants, which involve collective bargaining with all the country's news companies. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) said that an "alternative bargaining framework" could be needed if direct negotiations fail.
