Google to Pay 300+ EU Publishers for their Snippets in Search Results

Google has signed an agreement with more than 300 publishers in the European Union to pay for the snippets of their published content. Announced on May 11, the countries including Germany, France, and 4 other EU members with more than 300 publishers are ready to display snippets of news articles in search results. The agreement and the transfer are announced on May 11. It follows the passage of  EU copyright law three years ago declaring google other platforms to pay musicians, artists, news editors, and journalists for using or viewing their content.

What are the details of the agreement?

Google has launched a new tool to make offers to thousands more news publishers, starting in Germany and Hungary, and rolling out to other EU countries. An exemption to host small parts of stories, which can be used for free. Through this new tool, that allows you to be had through the Search Console, publishers can be supplied an Extended News Preview (ENP) settlement with Google for this content. It will tell you roughly what the provider is for, how to join, and how to offer feedback.

The law also creates new rights for publishers and other artists when longer previews of their content are used online without defining exactly a short version. Despite this uncertainty, Google announced last year that it would pay publishers for content that goes beyond links and short snippets.

“Despite this uncertainty, we announced last year that we will pay news publishers for the content which goes beyond links and short extracts, as we are already doing in countries such as Germany. Through this new tool, which will be available via Search Console, publishers will be offered an Extended News Preview (ENP) agreement with Google for this content.”-Google BlogSpot, 11th May

The blog did not specify how much the editors were paid. However, news publishers will continue to have full control over whether or not their content appears in Google Search and how that content can be reviewed and will be able to change their preferences and enroll in the ENP program at any time. Google did not place any restrictions on which sites are allowed to apply for its ENP program although this will need further clarification.
