‘Put just, it’s exceptionally a single-sided and unfair – so unfair that no company must be be asked to accept it,’  it explained.

But Google admitted it was unable to withdraw from Australia like it did in Spain when forced to fork out for news in that jurisdiction due to the fact the proposed law was so wide it would require the enterprise to get rid of all world-wide information by media firms and ‘citizen journalists.’

The web site claimed the arbitration procedure did not just take account of the ‘significant costs we incur in providing our services’.

‘The arbitration is set up to motivate information enterprises to make unreasonable and exorbitant money needs,’ the corporation said.
