Four publisher groups to Google: Your GDPR proposal ‘severely falls short’
The organizations point to Google's requirements that publishers collect consent and assume liability as some of the many issues.
Now, four major publisher trade groups have released a five-page joint letter to Google CEO Sundar Pichai with a basic message: nope.
The groups are Digital Content Next, European Publishers Council, News Media Alliance and the News Media Association. Their joint membership of about 4,000 newspapers and magazines, mostly in North America and Europe, includes Condé Nast, the Associated Press, The New York Times, The Guardian, Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters and Axel Springer.
