Spain parliament approves Google Tax


From Neowin:
The parliament of Spain passed a new law on Thursday which will allow news publishers to charge aggregator sites, such as Google News, each time they display news content in search results. This is a reform to the Intellectual Property Law and will come in effect on 1 January 2015.

Google had threatened earlier to shut down its news page in Spain if this reform in the law was passed, however the Spanish parliament approved the measure in a vote on Thursday.
