Google deals blow to EU copyright law, says won’t pay media outlets

Richard Gingras, Google’s vice president for news, told journalists in Paris that a Europe-based news publisher would have to decide if it would allow Google to show “snippets” of content or thumbnail images alongside search results in France. If they accept, publishers will not receive any compensation from Google, he said. But if they don’t, only a headline and a bare link to their content will appear in the results, resulting in a loss of visibility for the publisher.
