European Union and Australia Looking to Make Big Tech Companies Pay for News

People of all political stripes are starting to recognize the need for Big Tech regulation.

Lawmakers in Australia and the European Union are looking to regulate Big Tech companies by forcing them to pay for news.

European Parliament members (MEPs) are in the process of drafting the Digital Services Act (DSA) and the Digital Markets Act (DMA), according to the Financial Times. These acts primarily seek to subject Big Tech companies to “asymmetric measures,” meaning that they would face “greater scrutiny and penalties” than smaller tech companies. The Financial Times has also learned that the acts could be amended to include provisions similar to those proposed in Australia, such as forcing Big Tech to pay for news and to notify publishers whenever they change their news-ranking algorithms.

Maltese MEP Alex Saliba told FT that Big Tech companies “create power imbalances and benefit significantly from news content” and that Australia’s proposed legislation adequately addresses their “dominant market position.”

“I think it is only fair that they pay back a fair amount,” Saliba said.

Facebook and Google have previously criticized Australia’s attempt to regulate them. In August of last year Facebook said that Australia’s proposed law “misunderstands the dynamics of the internet and will do damage to the very news organisations the government is trying to protect. […] Assuming this draft code becomes law, we will reluctantly stop allowing publishers and people in Australia from sharing local and international news on Facebook and Instagram.”

Also in August 2020 Google claimed the regulations would force them to “provide [users] with a dramatically worse Google Search and YouTube, could lead to [their] data behind handed over to big news businesses, and would put the free services [they] use at risk.”

Big Tech regulation has become an issue that people of opposing political persuasions can agree is important. Although opposing sides will have opposing ideas, they can nevertheless concur that Big Tech companies dominate the market to an excessive degree and play a significant role in how elections unfold. Leftists are generally concerned that Big Tech allows the proliferation of “hate speech” and “misinformation,” whereas conservatives are generally concerned that Big Tech censors them and props up left-leaning mainstream media outlets.

Leaked Video Shows Tech Boss Describing How All Conservatives Will Be Frozen Out of the Market

They want conservatives to not be able to feed their families.

A leaked video released by Project Veritas shows the CEO of Salesforce describing how all conservatives will be frozen out of the corporate-controlled marketplace with the Jan. 6 protests being used as the excuse to initiate this Draconian power-grab.

Salesforce President and COO Bret Taylor claimed that the organization would be cutting off individuals and organizations for expressing conservative speech, such as fighting for voter fraud accountability, because that speech is now designed as incitement. 

“What we’ve done in light of the events on Jan. 6, is recognize a much broader range of messages has the potential to incite politically-motivated violence, given what we saw. And so, as I mentioned, we’ve engaged with the RNC to communicate that no messages on behalf of President Trump and no messages questioning the validity or integrity of the election are allowed on our platform under the guidelines that they may incite violence given the escalated conditions in the United States right now,” Taylor explained in the recording to justify his censorship policy.

As a result of their policies, Project Veritas was dropped by Salesforce without any violation of terms of service listed. Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe claims that a whistleblower emerged just days after they announced Salesforce booting them, showing how the intrepid hidden camera journalist has eyes and ears everywhere within the corrupt China-dominated corporate system.

The leaked video from the Salesforce call shows how the globalist regime intends to choke conservatives out of the marketplace, and they won’t even need to microchip the peasants in order to enforce their system of total control. Taylor patted himself on the back for his company’s pioneering role in manifesting the Orwellian Nightmare.

“I just want to remind you of how we approach these questions at Salesforce. It’s something I think we do more thoughtfully than any technology company in the world. We have an Office of Ethical Humane Use of Technology,” Taylor said.

“We also have an Ethics Advisory Board made up of employees and external advisors to help guide us on questions like this. We have an Acceptable Use Policy. It governs the use of our products for every single one of our customers. And every decision we made this week, and every decision we will make is guided by this Office of Ethical and Humane Use, and our Acceptable Use Policy,” he added.
