A new era in digital copyright: Google will cooperate with Turkiye

Breaking news: Unfortunately, publishers around the world cannot get paid for the content they produce because of Google’s practices. As a result of the pressures, Google came to the table with European countries and important steps were taken regarding royalty payments. Chairman of the Digital Media Commission and AK Party Hatay Deputy Huseyin Yayman: We will invite Google to the Parliament on copyright issues. We want EU norms.

Chairman of the Parliamentary Digital Media Commission and AK Party Hatay Deputy Huseyin Yayman said, “Our expectation for copyright is clear. We want European Union (EU) norms in digital copyright. Google will act together with Turkiye.”


Answering SABAH’s questions, Yayman stated that one of the most important issues on Europe’s agenda is copyright.

“In the past months, we have invited digital channels, including Youtube, Linkedin, Facebook, Instagram, and Tiktok, to the Parliament. Google also came and expressed that it stands by Turkiye’s digital journey”

Recalling that Google sat on the table with the Digital Copyright Law, which was prepared after the revolt of publishers in EU countries, Yayman said that they would meet with Google in the Parliament, thanks to a similar move by Turkiye.

Indicating that their expectations are very clear, Yayman said, “There should be the same criteria in Turkiye as there is in Germany, France, England, Austria, and America regarding copyright. We think that EU norms should work.”


Noting that 23% of the 145 million tweets posted on Twitter in May are fake, the world concerns the world, and continued as follows:

“The issue that Elon Musk, who bought Twitter by paying the highest amount of money, also dwells on. People’s personal rights are insulted through fake accounts, data privacy is destroyed, democracy and political institutions are taken hostage.

Accounts also threaten the reliability, usability and sustainability of social media. The reliability of the social network is disappearing. The situation is unacceptable. Steps should be taken against fake accounts.”
