Google signs copyright agreement with six French newspapers

November 19, 2020

PARIS (Reuters) – Alphabet’s Google <GOOGL.O> has signed copyright agreements with six French newspapers and magazines, including dailies Le Monde and Le Figaro, the U.S. tech company said in a post on its blog on Thursday.

Google is in talks with other French national and regional dailies and magazines, it said, adding that it aimed to reach a framework agreement with the country’s print-press lobby by the end of the year.

Google’s statement follows a court ruling last month that ordered the U.S. company to open talks with publishers in France about paying to use their content.
