A French appeals court upheld an order for Google to open negotiations with French publishers overpayments to use their news content.
The Paris Court of Appeal sided with France’s competition authority, which had ordered the U.S. tech company to discuss compensation with publishers and news agencies for reusing their material online.
French regulators had argued that Google must sit down for talks under a neighboring rights law adopted after the European Union overhauled the bloc’s copyright rules, which include allowing news companies to demand payments when search engines display snippets of their stories.
Google had balked and threatened last year to stop displaying snippets and thumbnail photos in its search results but French regulators said in April that the company was likely abusing its dominant position. Google argued it shouldn’t have to pay because news companies benefit from the millions of readers it sends to their websites.
The company also unsuccessfully argued that the competition watchdog overstepped its authority
