Nice to know…
Oracle v. Google re: Java found a way to get interesting again.
A couple of months after Oracle’s billion-dollar fishing expedition went bust when Google’s Android was found not to infringe on Java patents, the judge has asked both parties which bloggers they paid.
In judge William Alsup’s own words:
The Court is concerned that the parties and/or counsel herein may have retained or paid print or internet authors, journalists, commentators or bloggers who have and/or may publish comments on the issues in this case.
… each side and its counsel shall file a statement herein [clearly] identifying all authors, journalists, commentators or bloggers who have reported or commented on any issues in this case and who have received money (other than normal subscription fees) from the party or its counsel during the pendency of this action.
