Google In A Spot Of Bother

google new logoGoogle continues to be the target of publishers’ wrath in Germany as they continue to complain that Google profits from their online content without offering them a fair share of advertising revenue.

The German publishers have therefore filed a complaint against the multinational American tech company, Google.

According to a Reuters report, a spokesman for VG Media – a consortium of about 200 publishers the latest row is over whether or not the search engine should pay the publishers to show their articles online.

They justified the step by saying that Google still did not want to pay to use their publications: “So bringing a civil claim before the responsible court is the only way to enforce the ancillary copyright for press publishers against Google,” the VG Media spokesman said.

Google was not immediately available to comment, the report said.
