We know the tense relations between Google and news publishers in France and in Europe. These tensions also exist across the Atlantic, and the opposition between the media and the most famous of the search engines has taken a new dimension these days.
For a year, the Association News Media Alliance, which brings together more than 2,000 american media, has conducted its investigation, and the result has just been published in the form of a white paper, which has also been forwarded to the justice of the United States.
The grievances against the famous firm of Mountain Views are numerous and reach a large part of the claims of the French media.
This drift is permitted by the position ultradominante of Google, and therefore, it is not trivial, as this white paper has been attached to the american Justice in the framework of the antitrust investigation for the search engine. In addition to this use of “illegitimate” of the content, the report points to multiple abuses, such as, for example, the format for AMP, used by Google for the Mobile Internet, format harmful to the proper functioning of the platforms release.
In the list of recommendations submitted by the Washington association, we can read a call to be inspired by the european legislation and in particular the French, mainly in regard to copyright. Like what, the trends of the future always end up crossing the Atlantic, even if for the occasion, the trip will be the reverse that is most often used.
