Indian media said Google did not pay fair advertising revenue
On January 8, Beijing time, after receiving complaints from news agencies, India's Competition Commission on Friday ordered an investigation into Google, saying that its early assessment showed that Google violated antitrust laws and regulations. The Competition Commission of India said in its order that Google dominates part of the search service sector in India and may not have treated news organizations fairly. Google has no comment on this.
The Association of Digital News Organizations, which represents the digital business units of some of India's largest news organizations, said Google refused to pay members fair and reasonable advertising revenue. The Indian Competition Commission's order states that "in a well-governed country, the important role of news organizations cannot be diminished." Google leverages its dominance in the relevant market to protect its position in the news aggregation service market. ”
As advertising revenue is eroded by online news aggregation services like Google, news organizations have complained for years that tech companies are "white-boiling" their content. The Indian Competition Commission also mentioned in its order that new laws and regulations passed by France and Australia have prompted tech companies to reach multibillion-dollar content licensing agreements with news organizations.
