France's competition authority has fined Google 250 million euros for violating EU intellectual property rules in its dealings with media publishers. The authority specifically cited issues with Google's AI service Bard, now rebranded as Gemini.

Google has agreed to the settlement, emphasizing a focus on sustainable content distribution practices while disputing the proportionality of the fine.

The settlement aims to clarify future negotiations with French publishers and represents a step towards resolving a longstanding issue.
