Simply put: There's little — if any — legal challenges to the power Twitter and other tech companies wield over online speech. The First Amendment protects speech from intrusion by the government, while antitrust law was written to address issues like competition and consumer prices. Those moves were met with backlash from some conservatives and free-speech activists who argued that tech companies were unfairly censoring speech, and that their power in the digital realm had grown too great. And while tech companies are facing antitrust scrutiny for their size and market power, answers to the question of what the government can do about their control of online speech are vague at best. A key tenet of existing antitrust law is related to protecting competition.

Google, French publishers sign copyright news payment deal

Google has signed a deal with a group of French publishers paving the way for the internet giant to make digital copyright payments for online news content. After months of talks, Google France and the Alliance de la Presse d’Information Generale said Thursday that they agreed to set up a framework under which the U.S. company will negotiate individual licensing deals with publishers. Google has already negotiated a few individual payment deals with some French news publishers such as national daily paper Le Monde and weekly magazine l’Obs. Google had initially balked at paying for news, saying new companies benefited from the millions of readers it sends to their websites. But last year an appeals court ordered the company to open talks with publishers.

REUTERS/Paresh DavePARIS (Reuters) - Google and a French publishers’ lobby said on Thursday they had agreed a copyright framework under which the U.S. tech giant will pay news publishers for content online, in a first for Europe. Google’s vehicle for paying news publishers, called Google News Showcase, is another new product it has developed which allows publishers to curate their own content online. Google and APIG did not say how much money could be distributed to APIG’s members, who include most French national and local publishers. The deal follows months of bargaining between Google, French publishers and news agencies over how to apply revamped EU copyright rules, which allow publishers to demand a fee from online platforms showing extracts of their news. The world’s biggest search engine initially fought against the idea of paying publishers for content, saying their websites benefited from greater traffic brought by Google.

There was a sharp increase in child sexual abuse imagery online in 2020, data shows. Figures from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) showed a 31% increase in the number of images of child sexual abuse reported to them in 2020. In 2019, Facebook recorded more child sexual abuse material than any other tech company, and was responsible for around 99% of all reports to the NCMEC. The company uses technology that scans its platforms for known child sexual abuse images, which are then removed, the source said. The findings confirm trends reported by the UK's Internet Watch Foundation, which logs reports of online child sexual abuse content in the UK.

U.S. Big Tech — Google, Facebook, Amazon, Apple and Microsoft — have all set up dedicated AI labs over the last decade. There's also DeepMind, which is owned by Google parent company Alphabet, and OpenAI, which counts Elon Musk as a founding investor. "Reputationally, there is a good argument to say DeepMind, OpenAI, and FAIR (Facebook AI research]) are the top three," Riedl said.

Stocks such as Alphabet, Netflix, Activision Blizzard, General Motors and Etsy led the way and hit their own all-time highs. Stocks that make it to new highs, that's a good thing," Wald told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Wednesday. "Stocks that make new highs are usually stocks that continue to make new highs." He noted that several of those stocks reside in the communications services sector – namely, Netflix, Google parent Alphabet and Activision. I think that's going to be the real litmus test for Netflix," said Sanchez.

Among other things, Mr. Biden named an official Covid-19 response coordinator, shielded “Dreamers” from deportation, revoked the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline and rejoined the Paris climate accord. Marty Durbin of the Chamber of Commerce also opposed the move, calling it “a politically motivated decision that is not grounded in science.”Wall Street seemed pleased. Driven by expectations of a hefty economic stimulus, the S&P 500, Dow and Nasdaq all ended in record territory. What happens next: Mr. Biden will take more unilateral action today, using his executive authority to ramp up the manufacturing of coronavirus test kits, vaccines and supplies. Jen Psaki, the new White House press secretary, said Mr. Biden “absolutely remains committed” to invoking the Defense Production Act to bolster these supplies.

Now, Gil is co-leading a $155 million financing, investing alongside Andreessen Horowitz and Addition, Lee Fixel's venture firm.

Heads-down work, meanwhile, will remain a remote activity — satellite offices will be about community and innovation. With the pandemic disrupting the traditional centralized office model, less dense workspaces may take on a new design formula than previous offices. Currently, he told Insider, he's discussing plans with a couple of companies to create a "distributed 'necklace' of smaller hubs encircling the city" — otherwise known as satellite offices. "New satellite offices will offer new 'weak links' and serendipitous connections with a high degree of diversity in skill sets.

Google employee's newly-formed union, known as the Alphabet Workers Union, said it is concerned over Google's decision to lock Margaret Mitchell, a senior AI ethics researcher, out of her account. Google locked Mitchell out of her account after it found she was downloading material related to Timnit Gebru, another AI ethics researcher who was forced to leave the company early last month. Mitchell was reportedly using automated scripts to look through her messages to find examples of discriminatory treatment of Gebru before she was locked out of her account. "The Alphabet Workers Union (AWU) is concerned by the suspension of the corporate access of Margaret Mitchell, AWU member and lead of the Ethical AI team," the union wrote in a statement. They added: "In this instance, yesterday our systems detected that an account had exfiltrated thousands of files and shared them with multiple external accounts.

Over more than three years at the helm of the Justice Department's Antitrust Division, Makan Delrahim has ventured to define antitrust enforcement as much by what it is not as by what it is. During his time at the DOJ, antitrust enforcement became an unusually fashionable topic outside of tight-knit academic circles as progressives and conservatives alike called for the break-up of Big Tech companies including Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Google. The bipartisan push for vigorous antitrust enforcement put pressure on federal agencies to take on the tech companies. Still, Delrahim rejects notions even from his own party that certain issues with the tech platforms can be dealt with through antitrust enforcement. "There are some people who think any enforcement of the antitrust laws is interfering with the marketplace, and they claim to be conservatives.
