Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took aim at Meta on Tuesday after news broke that the social media giant might block the news feed on Canadian Facebook and Instagram. Meta’s move is apparently in response to a proposed Canadian law that would require digital companies to pay local news agencies to publish their news. A few months ago, even Google had modified some features to deal with this proposed law. Trudeau argued that the social media giant’s response to the proposed law is “not only flawed, it’s dangerous to our democracy, to our economy.” The Canadian government says the new law, which is currently being debated in the senate, will help financially strengthen Canadian news publishing agencies.

Although the TikTok app faces the risk of being banned in the US, its parent company ByteDance still has an ambitious plan for the US market. It turns out that ByteDance subsidiary Lemon Inc has filed a trademark application for a wide range of e-book publishing products and services. According to the filing with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, ByteDance is interested in the following products and services: reading application; download and discuss fiction e-books; retail bookstore services; order books in audio, print and digital formats; publication of e-books, audiobooks, physical books, etc. However, registering the trademark does not mean that ByteDance’s entry into book publishing and distribution is secure. But such a move could be logical, especially considering the huge popularity of the TikTok app among book lovers.


China witnesses first ChatGPT arrest for fake news

In a first of its kind, Chinese police have arrested a man who allegedly used ChatGPT to create a fake article about the train crash. This fake article was in turn published on Baidu-owned social media platforms, eventually leading to the man’s arrest. The man belongs to Gansu province and his surname is ‘Hong’, while his first name is still unknown. This arrest has come under the new artificial intelligence law that was passed just last year in China. Meanwhile, this whole incident has attracted a lot of attention from the Chinese media probably because of ChatGPT’s involvement. Although ChatGPT continues to enjoy great popularity, many countries have expressed concern about misinformation and fake news emanating from this platform. Italy recently became the first country in the world to ban ChatGPT before lifting the ban.
