Australia’s competitors watchdog on Monday accused Google of sharing “misinformation” a few proposed legislation that might require the search large to pay media corporations for information content material. The response comes after Google published an open letter saying new regulation will “damage how Australians use Google Search and YouTube.”

“A proposed legislation, the Information Media Bargaining Code, would pressure us to offer you a dramatically worse Google Search and YouTube, may result in your information being handed over to large information companies, and would put the free providers you employ in danger in Australia,” wrote Google Managing Director Mel Silva within the open letter on Monday. The search large additionally has a message on its Australian homepage that claims “the best way Aussies use Google is in danger” and hyperlinks to the open letter. 

Google did not instantly reply to a request for extra remark. 

Extra to return.
