Australian Broadcasting Corporation managing director David Anderson has reiterated the organisation's changed stance towards Google and Facebook, telling the National Press Club during an address that it would be pushing for payment from these digital entities in the event that they are persuaded to part with cash.
Search giant Google has offered another clarification, the second since it proudly announced "a new news experience launching later this year", with its vice-president of News, Richard Gingras authoring a fresh blog post on Friday (Saturday Australian time) to either clarify — or add confusion to, depending on how you look at it — the initial announcement by Brad Bender, the company's vice-president of Product Management in the news division.
Google appears to be reluctant to offer comments from its Australia managing director Mel Silva to any other publication after she went on the record with The Australian to clarify that the news initiative announced by the company on Thursday would not be about offering cash to Australian publishers for the use of news snippets in search results.
This is an unbearably good headline :-)
Great Stuff Sam - I wish this could go out to a larger audience.
5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
