If Google is taxed, the French media will no longer be referenced

Specifically, when a user clicks on an item from the search engine, Google must pay a fee for each reading. The amount could be significant because you should know that Google reference nearly 4 billion clicks per month to publishers' pages. The group has sent a letter as he explains that Google   can not accept that the introduction of a similar right for referencing sites French press calls into question its very existence and would therefore be forced to no longer reference the French sites.

According to the group this Act  would result in limiting access to information to reduce the number of French sites referenced on the Internet, but also stifle innovation.

Google threatens therefore no longer reference the French media if the government validates this bill. The group believes that submitting the SEO compensation while punishing the   failure to pay it in three years' imprisonment and a fine of 300,000 euros, will only multiply conflicts and slow Internet. The government will give there threats? AurĂ©lie Filippetti said the DGMIC (Directorate General of Media and Cultural Industries) working on the development of this bill.
