Google threatens to disable search in Australia over new law

Jan 22, 2021 08:39 IST

Google on Friday threatened to pull the plug on its search function in Australia if the government goes ahead proceeds with the proposed new media code. Australia is introducing a landmark law to make Google, Facebook and other tech companies pay media outlets for their news content. The tech giant has told a senate committee that if the new code were to become law, "it would give us no real choice but to stop making Google Search available in Australia."
Australia announced the legislation last month after an investigation found that Google and social media giant Facebook held too much market power in the media industry.
