German publishers appeal decision in market power case against Google

German publishers have appealed a Berlin court's rejection of a case in which they accused Google of abusing its market power by refusing to pay them for displaying newspaper articles online, a lawyer for the publishers said on Monday. Germany's biggest newspaper publisher, Axel Springer and 40 other publishers had accused Alphabet Inc's Google of unfair treatment. The court had rejected the case in April, saying that Google's business model was a "win-win" proposition for both parties.
