Wont it be hitting axe on our own leg ????

If they disable search functionality most would migrate to some other search engine ???
The issue here is that with new feed, AMP etc, people are not actually going to the actual source of the news and reading it on google, facebook directly with news sources losing traffic. They can come up with a feasible solution to compensate news agencies or dont give brief synopsis in the news feed. Even other search engines would be forced to do the same if this rule applies

Microsoft’s take on Australia’s proposed law is unsurprising — of course they'd be eager to impose an unworkable levy on a rival and increase their market share.

But in its eagerness, Microsoft makes numerous claims that have been thoroughly and independently debunked.

We have long been committed to supporting high-quality content on the web. Our issue is absolutely not with paying news organizations — we’ve done this for many years. Today Google News Showcase is paying publishers, and supporting local journalism, in Australia and over a dozen countries. Through these partnerships, we are paying significant amounts to support news organizations large and small — with more to come.

In response to Australia’s proposed new Media Bargaining law, Facebook will restrict publishers and people in Australia from sharing or viewing Australian and international news content.

The proposed law fundamentally misunderstands the relationship between our platform and publishers who use it to share news content. It has left us facing a stark choice: attempt to comply with a law that ignores the realities of this relationship, or stop allowing news content on our services in Australia. With a heavy heart, we are choosing the latter.
