Facebook to pay French publishers for reusing their content

New Delhi, Oct 22 (TIWN) As pressure mounts on social media platforms to pay news publishers for using their content, Facebook has reached a multi-year pact to pay French publishers for resharing their content on its platforms.

The social media giant said the licensing agreement with the Alliance of national and regional newspapers “means that people on Facebook will be able to continue uploading and sharing news stories freely amongst their communities, whilst also ensuring that the copyright of our publishing partners is protected.”  Facebook declined to specify how much it’s paying for the arrangement with l’Alliance de la presse d’information générale (APIG) in France when we asked. But in a blog post trumpeting the deal it wrote: “After constructive negotiations, this solution will further our investment in the news industry, and strengthen the news experience for both people and publishers on Facebook.”
