AOL sets German links

Published on .

America Online, Vienna, Va., and German publishing company Bertelsmann AG formed an alliance with Deutsche Telekom for global marketing of interactive services. Deutsche Telekom takes a minority stake in the Bertelsmann/AOL venture formed in March. AOL and Bertelsmann both obtain minority stakes in T-Online, Deutsche Telekom's Germany-based service (formerly BTX). Bertelsmann, AOL and Deutsche Telekom will market to two different European segments--the consumer and home market via AOL Online Service and professional and business markets through T-Online.

Separately, American Business Information, Omaha, Neb., formed an alliance with AOL in which ABI will provide its database of 10 million U.S. businesses to AOL's members in an online Yellow Pages. The searchable database will be available free of charge to members.
