Legal "Earlier this month Judge William Alsup ordered Oracle and Google to disclose any journalists or bloggers either has paid that could have commented on the Oracle v. Google case. Both parties responded last week - but Judge Alsup didn't think Google was completely forthright, and has asked the company to try again by the end of the week." Good to know Alsup is on top of this. Google claimed it hadn't paid any shills, but as large and powerful as the company is, I find that very hard to believe.

Oracle could make a case, valid or not, it would influence the attitude of these people.

Google AdSense may influence bloggers (anyone want to do a proper psychological study on how and how wide?).

But Oracle is not merely influencing Florian Mueller. They're telling him what to say.

Does Google AdSense's terms of service state what bloggers can or cannot say about Google?
