France’s anti-trust watchdog has handed Google a €500m fine for using French news agencies’ material, Reuters reports. Google must now present proposals within two months on how it will compensate the agencies, and other publishers, for the use of their news. If it does not, Google could face additional fines of up to €900,000 per day. Google said it was disappointed at the decision.
