"it requires online platforms to pay publishers a fee if they link to their news content."

This is insane. A link is like telling someone where to find a book – not like giving them an infringing photocopy of a book. I wonder how long this provision lasts once Google News starts filtering its European Web pages to omit any publisher who demands this fee. The publishers may find that they need Google more than Google needs them.

Think of it this way;  now doing a book report in school, you can pretend you made it all up since to post a bibliography would get you in trouble!!!
