Google has started to remove some California news links from its search results in response to a proposed California law. This law would require platforms like Google to pay news outlets for their content. The bill passed the California Assembly last year and is now being considered in the California Senate. However, its future remains uncertain as discussions continue with various stakeholders. The bill aims to support journalism by making tech platforms pay for using news content, but it has sparked significant debate and action, such as Google’s removal of news links. The idea of attacking people for links is absurd, and antithetical to how much of our Internet built up.

The Senate Judiciary Committee chair says the bill could be heard sometime in June.
