Oracle, Google say no payments for court coverage, but disagree on order

Oracle admits to paying a patent blogger, but says Google did much worse

By , IDG News Service |  IT Management

Oracle went on to single out two people who it said had written on issues related to the case and had links with Google: Ed Black, president and CEO of the Computer and Communications Industry Association, of which Google is a member, and Jonathan Band, whose book was cited as part of Google's evidence and who Oracle says has links to Google through trade organizations.

It remains unclear why Alsup issued the original order. Neither party had petitioned the court for such disclosure and it came well after arguments were over in the central part of the case.
