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.

Maybe Google isn't hiding anything. After all, their mantra is "Don't be evil" ...

That, and also I think there's enough Google fanboys around to give a biased viewpoint for free :p

But in all seriousness, Google do have a much better public image compared with Oracle. So it's really not that hard to believe that Oracle would spend more to pay bloggers to represent a positive image for the company.
