Google says Australian news rule threatens free search services

Canberra Google has warned that free search services can be withdrawn from Australia. The Australian government is working on a plan to pay for news content from Google. In response to this, Google has warned to take this step on Monday.

The US company has given this warning in an open letter to the people of Australia. Australia is working on a draft law under which both Google and Facebook may have to pay for news items sourced from commercial media companies.

The process of public consultation on this law is to be completed in a week. Google Australia and New Zealand Managing Director Mel Silva said in the letter that due to this proposed law we will be forced to provide you with very poor Google search and YouTube. Also, users' data can be given to big news companies. Apart from this, you may also have to lose the free Google search facility in Australia.
