AFP news agency sues Elon Musk X company for copyright infringement

AFP sues social media giant X (formerly Twitter) in Paris for copyright infringement.

Media groups seek compensation for news content shared on platforms like X, Facebook, and Google.

A 2019 EU law allows for payments, and Google and Facebook agreed to pay some French media outlets.

AFP accuses X, owned by Elon Musk, of refusing discussions on neighboring rights. The news agency aims for fair compensation through legal means.

Tech firms resist similar proposals globally, while X faces comparatively less scrutiny due to its smaller size.
