Submission + - France may tax Google for republishing headlines, President Hollande warns->

Qedward writes: France may introduce a law to make Google pay to republish news snippets if it doesn't strike a deal with French news publishers before the end of the year, the office of French President François Hollande said.

French publishers want to share in the revenue that Google earns from advertising displayed alongside their news snippets in search results. Readers are often satisfied by reading the headline and summary published by Google News, and don't feel the need to click through to the news site, the publishers say. In this way, Google profits and the content creators don't.

The publishers want to be able to charge Google to compensate them for ad revenue losses.
