Six French newspapers have come together to create an online newsstand
where readers will be able to buy and read their content. The
initiative, which will be launched in September, was announced
yesterday by France’s National Daily Press Union as an alternative to
Google News, El País reported.
maneuver comes months after Google announced its intention to include
advertising on its news aggregation system. French newspapers had tried
to negotiate with Google to receive a percentage of the ads revenues.
But, as their request was denied, they have decided to launch a paid
service of their own.
