Google closes ‘News’ in Spain, not all publishers agree

Free daily 20 minutos is no fan of Google News leaving Spain. This as a result of the ‘link tax’ that charges website for external links… actually a law specifically aimed at Google, and something publishers in other countries want to copy.

This message of editor in chief Arsenio Escolar appears on the 20 Minutos website.

Actually, it’s the Google Translate version (is that legal in Spain?), I know Arsenio and he speaks much better english than that. This is the original version.
