Now Spanish publishers want piece of the pie
It just doesn't seem to stop in Europe when it comes to publishers fighting Google. Germany is probably the most reluctant towards the search giant, but also France, Italy and in a less 'heavy' battle the UK have stood up to Google. Now its Spains turn.
Carlos Astiz, leader of the Spanish Publishers’ Association (AEPP) asked Google to pay “a proportional amount” of the income it obtains on-line by using material from various Spanish publications.
The Spanish publishers haven't putten a price tag on their demand yet but in the Spanish press it is said that it could get up to the 1.2 million euros per year which the Germans demand from Google.
"Without a doubt, Google is getting more and more bad press since it is maintaining a monopoly situation with absolutely onerous conditions. Google keeps 90 percent of all the advertising income on the internet that do not come from porno. This is income that does not stay in Spain."
"We would have to sit down and see which is the model to follow, which percentage would be asked by each of the media for the use of its contents by Google News."
