    French watchdog tells Google to pay news firms for using their content
    The French anti-competition watchdog on Thursday asked tech giant Google to negotiate with publishers and news agencies on paying them proper remuneration for re-using their content on its platforms.
     
    The French ‘Autorite de la Concurrence' body in a ruling granted requests for urgent interim measures presented by press publishers and the news agency AFP.
     
    "It requires Google to negotiate with publishers and news agencies the remuneration due to them under the law relating to neighbouring rights for the re-use of their protected contents,' the authority said in a statement.
     
    The ruling came on a complaint lodged in November 2019 by several unions representing press publishers of practices implemented by Google. 
     
    The French authority found that "Google's practices on the occasion of the entry into force of the neighbouring rights law were likely to constitute an abuse of a dominant position, and caused serious and immediate harm to the press sector".
     
    "It thus requires Google, within three months, to conduct negotiations in good faith with publishers and news agencies on the remuneration for the re-use of their protected contents," the statement further said.
     
    Google was yet to react to the ruling. 
     
    The French watchdog said the negotiation must retroactively covers the fees due as of the entry into force of the law on October 24, 2019.
     
    France's competition watchdog in December last year slapped Google with a $166 million fine for abusing its position in the online search advertising market.
     
    The French competition watchdog said it considers that the Google Ads operating rules imposed by Google on advertisers are established and applied under non-objective, non-transparent and discriminatory conditions.
     
    In March, European Union's antitrust regulators fined Google 1.49 billion euros ($1.7 billion) for abusing its dominance in the online search market by blocking rivals.
     
    Brussels in 2018 hit Google with a record 4.3 billion euros fine for abusing the dominant market position of its Android operating system for mobile phones.

    WhatsApp limits frequently forwarding messages to 1 chat at a time
    In a bid to curb the flow of misinformation in COVID-19 times, Facebook-owned WhatsApp on Tuesday announced to introduce a new limit on frequently forwarding messages where a WhatsApp user can forward such messages to one chat at a time.
     
    This limit kicks in once a message has been previously forwarded five times or more, the company said in a statement.
     
    WhatsApp which has over 400 million users in India last year introduced users to the concept of messages that have been forwarded many times.
     
    These messages are labeled with double arrows to indicate they did not originate from a close contact.
     
    In effect, these messages are less personal compared to typical messages sent on WhatsApp.
     
    "We are now introducing a limit so that these messages can only be forwarded to one chat at a time," the company said in a statement.
     
    The company said it bans two million accounts per month for attempting to send bulk or automated messages.
     
    WhatsApp set global limits on forwarded messages to constrain virality in January last year where it restricted forwarding messaging to five times from an individual or a group.
     
    "We set limits on forwarded messages to constrain virality which led to a 25 per cent decrease in message forwards globally at the time," informed WhatsApp.
     
    In recent weeks, people have also used WhatsApp to organize public moments of support for frontline health workers.
     
    "However, we've seen a significant increase in the amount of forwarding which users have told us can feel overwhelming and can contribute to the spread of misinformation," WhatsApp noted, adding that it's important to slow the spread of these messages down to keep WhatsApp a place for personal conversation.
     
    WhatsApp is working with NGOs and governments, including the World Health Organization (WHO) and over 20 national health ministries, to help connect people with accurate information.
     
    It has also announced the WhatsApp Coronavirus Information Hub.
