Facebook announced Tuesday its intention to lift the ban on news content in Australia “in the coming days,” after the government agreed to amend a law that forces tech giants to pay media outlets to use their content.

Australian Finance Minister Josh Friedenberg and Facebook Australia’s Managing Director Will Easton said the two sides had reached a compromise on key issues in this text that the tech giants vehemently opposed.

“Thanks to these changes, we can work to continue our investment in journalism for the public interest and to bring back the news to Australians on Facebook in the coming days,” Easton said.

Last week, Facebook blocked links to publications issued by news and media pages in Australia, in a move that also affected several official pages on the network belonging to the country’s emergency services.

This move aroused great condemnation in Australia and several countries.

The settlement reached means that the two giants Facebook and Google, who are the most prominent targets in this bill, will not face any penalties in the event that agreements are reached with media outlets in exchange for using their contents.
