Fb has vowed to revive hundreds of Australian information pages after the federal government stated it will amend its new media code, which requires internet platforms to pay for information content material, following a weeklong standoff.
Treasurer Josh Frydenberg stated Fb had promised “to revive Australian information pages within the coming days” in an announcement on Tuesday, noting the Scott Morrison administration would quickly introduce “additional amendments” to the media bargaining code.
“These amendments will present additional readability to digital platforms and information media companies about the best way the Code is meant to function and strengthen the framework for making certain information media companies are pretty remunerated,” Frydenberg stated.
