Google rallies YouTubers against Australian news payment plan

(FILES) A file illustration picture taken on April 29, 2018, shows the Google logo displayed on a screen and reflected on a tablet in Paris.
Google clashed with France in a top EU court on Tuesday arguing it feared for freedom of speech if forced to apply Europe’s “right to be forgotten” principle worldwide. The two sides are battling over a shock 2014 decision at the same court, that imposed a right for individuals, under certain conditions, to have references to them scrubbed from search engine results. / AFP PHOTO / Lionel BONAVENTURE
