A landmark Australian proposal would make Google pay for news content, and threaten their free search services in the country,
Google organizes the world's info (actually OTHER PEOPLE'S content) and makes it searchable for free but generates revenue with the ads along side other people's content AND by offering analytics on that traffic.
From Google rep, "would force us to provide you with a dramatically worse Google Search and YouTube, could lead to your data being handed over to big news businesses".
Shouldn't the content owner be able to see who is viewing their content?
Is this part of Google's 1st party cookie plot to own ALL of the traffic data?
Does Google have the ability to influence the ads on other sites? If the NY Post story has one ad framework, if the traffic comes from Google Search/News does that allow them to change what ads are seen?
