’Pay for news’: Microsoft backs Australia, says Bing can replace Google search

Microsoft backed a proposed law in Australia that would require Google to pay local news outlets for linking their content. Brad Smith, Microsoft’s president, revealed this in a blogpost. He wrote that small businesses who wish to transfer their advertising to Bing can do so simply and with no transfer costs. Smith and CEO Satya Nadella spoke with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison recently.
