Google to Introduce News Payment Tool

Google Inc. is going to introduce a new one click payment system which will be for the new paper publication online. According to the recent report which was published Google has dubbed the tool as  “Newspass” and it would be  providing one new revenue source for  publishers who are struggling in the digital age. According to the translation of the New York Times done for the article, which was published in the Italian newspaper La Repubblica that, by the end of this year Google willbe launching the integrated payment system which would be allowing the users to buy the new content with the help of a single click and the publishers would be able to use a single infrastructure for the mobile, web and the tablet for the sake of monetizing their content.

Google’s in Media Business

With the help of this payment system the consumers would be allowed to pay for the full subscriptions or to have access to the articles which will be just for one time. The whole industry of media enjoys a love and hate relationship with the Internet search giant Google. The Mountain View, who is the online publications company, would be providing great amount of the traffic to those web sites that are related to the newspaper as well as the magazines, but it has been complained by some of the people that this company has grabbed a huge and great portion of the advertising dollars which were claimed by them once. It was done in part by aggregating as well as linking to the articles. It has been said consistently by Google that it wishes to partner up with the business of media and also want to help where it is possible for the company. Google has also readily admitted that the worth of the services of the company has much to do with the quality of the content. A handful of initiatives have been rolled out by the company for the sake of helping the publishers to make some more money over the internet.

Chris Gaither – the spokesman of Google has said that the company had no specific way to announce currently about the Newspass, but the executives of Google have much the references to this kind of payment system in the past times. During the month of December, David Drummond, who is the chief legal officer has said during the World Newspaper Congress that they are greatly exploring the solutions related to technology which would be helping the publishers with some of the logistical problems that are in charging for the whole content like the billing systems that are used for the subscriptions or for the micropayments.

Google and Newspaper Association of America

During the previous fall season, it was told to the Newspaper Association of America by Google that a latest version of the Checkout micropayment platform would be helping the industry for charging the content which is available over the Internet. Many of the media outlets have tried to charge a little money for one article which includes many publishers.

China Throws ball in Google’s Court

Chinese government issued a 31 page long statement on the Internet in the start of June when many of the websites from around the world were censored in the country. With 384 million Internet users in China, the restrictions were coming up as huge to the Internet market. The country tried to restrict all the possible websites that contain information against the interests of the ruling communist party.

Google’s verdict

Officials from Google certainly came up with their perspective. They were of the point of view that though the ban and restrictions was because of the government based privacies. The ban is justified at the government level but tends to disturb the international trade opportunities. The restrictions tend to violate all the rules and regulations by the World Trade Organization. In addition, many of the multinational businesses are doing business in the online world. They have been restricted in the country restricting access to them and the commercial activities.

There have been efforts from the European as well as American governments in order to lift the ban and smooth the ties between Google and China but this didn’t serve profitable in any way and the restriction as well as the statements on it were responded well by Chinese officials.

China’s Response

China came up with a very crude response to the statement released by Google. The paper released said that the Internet administration of China is not dealing for trade interests or trade policies. The Internet administration is making domestic policies according to the rules and regulations. The WTO has no concern in this regard as it is not an organization that is dealing with internal issues of any country. The statement was given by the WTO research center at Beijing’s University of International Business and Economics.

The statement was also consisting of the fact that China was not discriminating any local and international companies and both of them were given equal royalty. They have equal opportunities in the country therefore WTO is not being violated with this restriction.

Any information that is against the interest of the country as well as that violates the integrity and status of the country need to be shut down immediately. China has the right to restrict any such information that is against the interests, as well as ethical issues such as pornography and terrorism. No country around the world is completely free from Internet restrictions.

Google’s Response and aftermath

The company is coming up with changes in the region. after the search engine services being restricted in the country, the search engine that was entitled to China has been moved to Hong Kong and all request have been rerouted to Hong Kong instead of China. Google still has an office in Beijing but it seems pretty difficult for them to get their license renewed by officials. They even find it difficult to continue business in China. Google is still offering the non restricted services like Google Maps to China and the future to such services is not decided as yet.

Bullet Hole Pictures of Gregory Campbell Pulled off from Facebook

In a yet another online social networking drama, Facebook has finally removed the controversial picture of Gregory Campbell, a British MP that featured him having a bullet hole in his temple. The picture was published all across the web on several socializing platforms after Campbell criticized a report published on Bloody Sunday, an open firing case that victimized several people of the Irish Republican Army in Londonderry.

Gregory Campbell, a member of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) became a soft target of the online death threats due to his critical remarks which he made about the most awaited Saville report. The report was based on a heart wrenching incident which saw nearly 13 people being mercilessly shot dead by the British soldiers during the civil wars that occurred in 1972, in Londonderry. The report was finally released last week on Tuesday and none of the claimed victims were armed. The report stated that the soldiers had started an open fire without giving any kind of warning to the people around. However, Campbell, a British MP who has his constituency in Londonderry, stated that more focus should be rendered to the Irish Republican Army victims, the members of whom had fought mightily during the Northern Ireland’s Troubles in order to wreck out the control of the British from the province.

Publicity on Facebook
This stance of Campbell angered a large number of Republicans which led the various networking sites such as Facebook attacking him over the stance. He was later found stating that he was informed by a member of the public that the networking site was set up and upon investigation it was known that there was a huge score of vicious references about him and his colleagues. Campbell alleged that a similar networking website of Facebook had also set up a campaign against him wherein they had published pictures and posters of him suffering a bullet hole onto his forehead. Campbell said that within just a few days of the incident, nearly 700 people from across the country signed up to the website illustrating their support to the website. As a result, the entire episode came up clearly and the action taken up by the socializing network was known.

Trying to clear the cloud from the entire episode, Campbell stated that he was constantly in the contact with the socializing website trying to ensure that these networking websites were simply closed off. He also took the help of the police investigation in order to prosecute the responsible people who had put up such posters on the socializing network. The revolutionary episode sparked a lot of flames in the province about the open firing which had taken place a couple of decades ago. Moreover, the entire news was quite annoying for Facebook and its websites which had featured the poster on the web.
