Canberra and GAFA calm things down on the eve of consideration of the Australian bill which aims to force internet giants to pay media for the use of their content. After meeting with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his Google counterpart Sundar Pichai over the weekend, Treasury Secretary Josh Frydenberg said the talks had made “great progress.”.

At the time of the presentation of this “binding code of conduct” last January, Google had threatened Australia to withdraw access to its search engine if this legislation were to be implemented as it is. Facebook for its part warned that the company could prevent users of the social network and Instagram from sharing news on its platforms.
