Summary (IA Generated)

Australia passed a new law on Thursday that requires tech giants to pay for the news shared by users on their platforms.

But in a hilarious new clip, Australian political comedy outfit The Juice News argues that only does the law not protect the news industry, it appears to exist primarily to protect large scale media companies like Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp.

Last week in response to the proposed law, Facebook banned the sharing of any news by Australian users.

Facebook backed down on Monday, after Australian lawmakers offered a few concessions to it and Google, among them giving tech giants more time to negotiate with news outlets before disagreements are sent to an arbitrator.

In addition, the law as passed also gives tech companies wiggle room, saying it “must take into account whether a digital platform has made a significant contribution to the sustainability of the Australian news industry through reaching commercial agreements” with news outlets.

Now back to The Juice News which, as part of its ongoing video series “Honest Government Ads,” which roasts disingenuous media outreach by the Australian government, tore into the new law with, as we said, a really funny clip.
