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.

Google has also provided a lot of support and funding for various bodies, many of whom focus on "freedom" in one form or another (open source/standards, free-speech, etc), like the EFF, Creative Commons and various law schools. Many of these bodies would've spoken out in Google's defence. Whether you'd consider them "schills" or not depends on which side of the fance you sit on, I suppose.
