The News Media and Digital Platforms Mandatory Bargaining Code is here!Under the code, news and media outlets CAN ask tech giants like Facebook and Google for payment for their news content appearing on their sites, but will ALL news and media outlets rely on the Code? We expect there are some outlets who recognise the benefit they receive from their content being shared or searchable on the internet and that alone is sufficient value in return... and a better outcome than being blocked or banned.#news #australia #Google #Facebook ...

It seems that the 'experiment' is almost over. Facebook have reached an agreement with the Australian government which is said to include changes to the media bargaining laws.By now, Facebook and the various news and media outlets have a better idea of the dynamics of their relationship. How did the ban change user behaviour or traffic to Facebook and/or news websites? It's going to be interesting to review the results (if they're ever made public).#news #Facebook #australia ...
