Google sweetens article fees to defuse Australian news spat

Facebook bans article sharing over legislation that would require it to pay

SYDNEY -- Google has struck a deal with Australia's biggest media groups to host articles on its site ahead of pending legislation that compels Big Tech to pay fees for news, while the country's Facebook users were left in the dark Thursday after the social media platform terminated the sharing of such content there.

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch's News Corp announced it had struck a multiyear licensing deal with Google on Wednesday, granting the company access to the conglomerate's content.
