Staving off EPIC 2014: Newspapers take aim at Google in copyright dispute
A group representing global newspaper publishers has launched a lobbying campaign to challenge search engines like Google that aggregate news content.
The move comes as the newspaper industry’s traditional business model is under pressure with advertising spending shifting away from print and towards the Internet.
The Paris-based World Association of Newspapers, whose members include dozens of national newspaper trade bodies, said it is exploring ways to “challenge the exploitation of content by search engines without fair compensation to copyright owners.”
