German publishers say Google won't get the same deal it got in France

Loek Essers | Feb. 5, 2013
The French settlement with Google doesn't solve the publishers' problems, the Germans said.

A Google spokesman would not comment directly on the German publishers' statement Monday, but e-mailed a previous comment on the proposed law: "An ancillary copyright endangers one of the fundamental principles of the web, the possibility to share and search for information through links. The law would let users not always find what they are searching for. It would be detrimental for jobs and growth in Germany as almost half of the German economy already depends on the Internet. We hope that the German parliament will oppose to the draft law."
