Google: Just 10 Per Cent Please!

Just when its rival Apple has been receiving harsh criticism for demanding a hefty 30 per cent commission from content producers offering payable content, Google has pushed a thorn into its side. Google recently announced that it will ask for the comparatively small amount of just 10 per cent for content sold via its One Pass system.

One Pass will be launched first in the UK, France, Canada, Germany, Spain and Italy and will be compatible with PCs, tablets and smartphones. Publishers will have the freedom to customise how and when to charge a fee for their content.
