Media group study finds Google makes billions from news

WASHINGTON – Google took in some US$4.7 billion (S$6.4 billion) in revenue in 2018 from “crawling and scraping” news websites without paying publishers, according to an industry-sponsored study released June 10 which was disputed by the tech giant and media analysts.

The study by the News Media Alliance underscores industry arguments about Google and other online giants harming traditional news organisations by dominating the Internet news ecosystem and ad revenues generated through it.
