As the European Union is working on a controversial new copyright law that will give publishers the right to demand money from web platforms if parts of their articles pop up in new search results or reposts, Google is floating pulling Google News from the continent in response, according to Jennifer Bernal, the tech giant’s policy manager for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, as quoted by Bloomberg. She asserted that Google is considering a variety of options and will analyse at length the new rules, once they are introduced, before making a final decision, adding that the tech giant would withdraw its service from European soil rather reluctantly. Google has stated that news service is not a direct source of revenue, but the news aggregator attracts mobile users, who place queries that may potentially be used in contextual ads and thus generate lucrative revenue.

The French data regulatory authority, the CNIL, has set a precedent which may rattle digital leaders across Europe, hitting the tech giant with a €50 million fine on Monday (21 January) for breaching EU data protection rules. EURACTIV France reports. The fine, imposed under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation legislation, is the first of its kind issued by a European regulatory authority. “This is the first time that the CNIL has applied the new penalty thresholds provided for by the GDPR,” the French authority highlighted. “The amount and the publicity of the fine are first justified by the seriousness of the deficiencies identified concerning the basic principles of GDPR: transparency, information and consent.” Europe’s powerful data protection regulators are banding together to coordinate how they investigate and sanction misbehaving companies before a major overhaul of the bloc’s privacy law takes effect in May. … [Read more...] about France hits Google with €50 million GDPR fine
