Yahoo News announced Monday that it may review its contracts with various news providers, following a report by the Fair Trade Commission (FTC) last week that warned that the platform's operator, Yahoo Japan, may be in a superior bargaining position.

Yahoo Japan released a statement saying it will consider ways in which it can have a better partnership with news organizations, such as by changing their contract details, for example.

The company is yet to announce any specific plans. Some domestic media reports have said that changing contract details may lead to an increase in news usage fees paid to media organizations, and a public relations official at the company, who declined to share his name because details of Yahoo's plans have not officially been made public, said that the firm will consider the idea going forward.
