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.

Are freebies payments?

I wonder if part of the problem is Google's freebies. If Google sends bloggers review devices is that a payment? If a blogger is invited to Google I/O and walks away with $1200 worth of kit, is that a payment?

The list could be very long if those are included
