    A battle about online news is pitting Australia against two of the world’s biggest tech firms.

    The government wants Google and Facebook to pay media companies for journalism.

    Facebook responded by blocking Australians from viewing and sharing news articles.

    After threatening to pull out of the country, Google has since signed payment deals with media firms.

    Canada and the EU are considering similar legislation.
