AFP sues Musk’s X over copyright

AFP news agency filed a copyright suit against social media giant Twitter, now rebranded as X, in France. The case underscores media’s push for tech companies to pay for news content, backed by an EU law.

While Google and Facebook agreed to payments, AFP accuses X, owned by Elon Musk, of refusing dialogue on “neighbouring rights”. Media’s struggle for fair distribution of content value continues globally.
