Germans want cartel authority to stand up to Google
Let's make a bet. How long do you think before Google says "enough is enough, we are leaving Germany"? It might take a while, but the Germans seem to be doing all but one thing to get Google out of Germany. The only thing they are not doing is not using the search engine.
Google is taking away the publishers' 'valuable content'. With the publication of the content in search results Google is therefore mis-using the intellectual property rights. At least that what the publishers say.
“We would be happy to explain our products and business practices to the German authorities and are confident, that they fully comply with German and European law.”
