Tech giant to spend €150 million on grants for journalism

Google announces partnership with Europe publishers


After years of arguments over how its Google News service handles content in Europe, Google is offering both money and cooperation to large publishers in several EU countries. The Digital News Initiative is likely to be seen as an attempt for Google to improve its image after recently being accused of anti-competitive behaviour

Last December, Google shut down its Google News page in Spain, after the country threatened steep fines for aggregator sites that don´t pay newspapers and other content publishers.

The European Union is investigating whether Google has abused its 90% market share in search to illegally promote its other products and services. News is not directly affected by this investigation. However, publishers have complained for years about the impact of Google’s use of their content.

The company said on Tuesday that they would work with European newspapers and journalism organizations to develop products and increase revenue, crucial for a cash-strapped newspaper industry that has struggled to stay afloat in the Internet age.

The pledge is Google’s attempt to present a friendlier front in Europe, where it is facing antitrust charges and has come under fire from some publishers over its policies.

In the past few years, Google has faced challenges from European newspapers over the search giant’s use of headlines and other content on its Google News site. 

In France, Google created a €60 million fund in 2013 to help newspapers create better digital products. More than 50 projects have received money, Google said Tuesday, including a new mobile product for French newspaper Le Monde.

Last year, Google said it would shut Google News in Spain rather than pay publishers for linking to their content.

Eight European publishers, including the Guardian and the Financial Times in the U.K., El Pais in Spain and La Stampa in Italy, are involved in the new program.
