Google called out for making money on free content. Now that Canadien government (like commonwealth partner Austrailia) is addressing issue by FORCING company to pay news outlets for content by passing laws mandating it and company is just shutting news operation down instead. Noteworthy in that Google in BIG TROUBLE on variety of fronts. SCOTUS here in US currently hearing arguments on controversial Section 230 protections potentially rescinding liability shield, ad biz in serious decline and by extension revenue down and in all important AI race that could determine future of their search monopoly their “BARD” product failed miserably shaving 100B off their market value almost overnight. Chatbot product financed by Microsoft (read BING) worked better meaning Google must commit BILLIONS in R&D to compete prompting company to issue a CODE RED alert internally. Bigger you are, harder you can fall.
