France's competition regulator on Tuesday slapped Google with a 500 million euro ($593 million) fine for failing to negotiate with media companies "in good faith" over the use of their content under EU copyright rules. 

In a ruling published on its website, the competition authority also ordered Google to make media publishers "an offer of remuneration for the current use of their copyrighted content" or risk paying additional damages of up to 900,000 euros a day.
