Facebook has reached an agreement with French news publishers to remunerate them over the copyright of their content, the US social network announced on Thursday.

It comes just weeks after Facebook signing similar agreements with newspapers Le Monde and Le Figaro.

This licensing agreement signed with lobbying group the Alliance for the General Information Press (Apig), which represents national and regional dailies, “provides that Facebook obtains and remunerates licenses for neighboring rights,” according to a statement.
