How Australia Took on Facebook and What It Means for Canada

Australia vs. Facebook

APF Canada President and CEO Stewart Beck joins the Foundation's Project Manager, Daniela Rodriguez, in a discussion about the battle between tech giants Facebook and Google and the Government of Australia in the lead-up to that country's ground-breaking news media law.

In Asia Watch, Daniela has written about the Asia Pacific's digital economies and the role emergent and established media platforms are playing in the digital transformations that are budding across the region.

Taking a deeper dive into Facebook's unusual move of blocking all Australian media domestically and internationally from its platform, this episode of Asia Watch: Beyond the Headlines focuses on the high-stakes battle royale between Facebook and Australia, and what that means for country's like Canada grappling with the overreach of today's tech giants.
