    Australia is trying to make Facebook and Google pay for news. Facebook Australia says it doesn’t need news, actually.

    News stories are frequently copied from other newspapers. I doubt French papers have paid for the articles they pirated from other sources.

    There is distinction between outright copying someone's work and writing new article based on information found in someone's work. Copying without permission is a clear violation of intellectual property laws, while second latter usually is not (it's more case-by-case basis).
    Anyway what you are saying is just tu quoque logical fallacy. Whataboutism is not a solution that will prevent US companies from breaking the IP laws.

    They can't force international company to enter or stay on the local market either. You can only wish that competition will take its place.

    Just to clarify; Krusty didn't say. Krusty only posted what the Australian Prime Minister said. ;)

    I don't work for the Government so I can only go along for the ride, wherever that takes us. :doubt:

    They can also leave Australia partially: provide services making more money, but just block i.e. search engine.
