Submission + - Google, Oracle Deny Direct Payments to Media (

itwbennett writes: "Earlier this month, the judge in the Oracle v. Google trial ordered the companies to disclose the names of bloggers and reporters who had taken payments from them. Not surprisingly, both companies have denied making direct payments to writers (with the exception of Florian Mueller of FOSSPatents whose relationship to Google was disclosed in April). But Oracle has tattled on Google regarding some indirect connections. In particular, Google called out Ed Black for an article he wrote about the case for Forbes. And Jonathan Band, co-author of the book, 'Interfaces on Trial 2.0,' which Google cited in its April 3, 2012 copyright brief."
