France called on Google to negotiate with publishers / / Otherwise, the company will have to pay for the content provided by a search engine

French Government consider adopting a law that would force Google to pay for the provided content in the search engine, if the company fails to negotiate with publishers on the distribution of advertising revenue to the end of the year.

France intends to consider the adoption of a law that would force the U.S. search engine Google to pay for the right to use the French news media, if the company does not settle the debate about advertising revenue with publishers, said the administration of President Francois Hollande on Monday.
In a meeting with Chairman of the Board of Directors of Google Eric Schmidt President Hollande said that would like to see an agreement between the company and the publishers had been reached by the end of the year. “Dialogue and negotiations between the partners seem the best option, but if necessary we will take appropriate law” – Francois Hollande said Mr. Schmidt, quoted by the press service of the President of France Elysee Palace.
Google refused comment on the statement of the French president, but we know that the company has previously stated that the adoption of such a law was just no French newspapers from its search engine.
leading French publishers last month petitioned the government the country to adopt legislation that will settle their dispute with Google, forcing him and other search engines to share profits with the French newspapers. Their request was followed after the German government approved a similar bill.
French newspapers hope that the adoption of this law will be a means of support for their business, which is under threat due to the outflow of advertisers of the print media.
