    "Microsoft seeks to fill void if Google exits Australia

    Microsoft has a "Plan B available" if Google follows through on threats to leave Australia over plans to compel digital giants to pay news organisations for content...

    Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella contacted Prime Minister Scott Morrison within days to make clear Microsoft's Bing search engine could expand if Google exits...

    The pair spoke last week, the newspaper said, with Nadella reportedly saying Microsoft had a "Plan B available"..."

    "Australian law could make internet ‘unworkable’, says World Wide Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee...

    Internet pioneer Tim Berners-Lee has said Australia’s plan to make tech giants pay for journalism could render the internet as we know it 'unworkable'.

    The inventor of the World Wide Web claimed that proposed laws could disrupt the established order of the internet.
    'Specifically, I am concerned that that code risks breaching a fundamental principle of the web by requiring payment for linking between certain content online,' Berners-Lee told a Senate committee scrutinizing a bill that would create the New Media Bargaining Code.

    If the code is deployed globally, it could 'make the web unworkable around the world', he said..."

    I can't watch news in this country anymore. If it's not about COVID-19, it's about Goggle or Farcebook. I might be in the minority but who cares?!

    I don't I just see it all as corporate greed. Dedo was right the web really has become a big pile of doggy poo. I would take the old Java games any day over the worse flash and now html5 bullcrap.
    But these young ones you just can't tell them what to do hahaha.

    Surely this can go full circle, google can just exploit their dominance and tells news agencies they must pay to get listed.
