EU Defends Proposals Granting Publishers New Rights

The European Union’s digital chief on Monday defended upcoming legislative proposals by the bloc’s executive body to grant publishers new rights, a bid by the EU to help them better negotiate compensation from news aggregators such as Alphabet Inc.’s Google news search that post snippets of their articles on their website.

The European Commission is expected to propose new EU-wide rules that would hand news publishers “legal certainty and bargaining power” against online services using their content, according to previously reported internal documents. The new rules make up part of the bloc’s copyright proposals to be presented later this month.
