The Parliament on Thursday passed changes to the supposed News Media Bargaining Code concurred between Treasurer Josh Frydenberg and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Tuesday. As a trade-off for the changes, Facebook consented to lift a prohibition on Australians getting to and sharing news.

Google and Facebook need media, however, they needn’t bother with a specific media organization, and that implied media organizations couldn’t do business bargains,” the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission seat added. The remainder of the laws had passed before, so they would now be able to be executed.
