  • Australia claimed another win against Google on Wednesday.

  • The search giant has reportedly agreed to pay publisher and broadcast on nine entertainment more than $23 million a year for content.

  • It's the second major Australian company to reach an agreement with the tech giant rival Seven.

  • West Media said Monday it had struck a similar deal.

  • Both Google and nine declined to comment on the reports in newspapers on Wednesday.

  • The deals were struck just weeks before Australia's government plans to pass laws that would essentially force Google and Facebook to agree arrangements or have fees set for them.

  • Last month, the Silicon Valley firm threatened to close its search engine in Australia if the government proceeded with the bill.

  • Now Australian Treasurer Josh Frye Denberg says Wednesday's news is proof the draft law is already succeeding.
