It seems that all of the tech companies around the world are currently fighting with eachover, first it was Apple and Samsung and now it’s Oracle and Google in the courts.

In May Judge Willam Aslup ruled that Google was guilty of infringing upon Orcale’s patents but then made a u-turn on the ruling, stating that Google actually didn’t infringe on these patents, but it’s not over yet as on Tuesday the same Judge asked both Google and Orcale to confess whether or not they paid bloggers or commenters to publicize the events within the hearings.

Judge Aslup said this in hiss statement:

“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, although proceedings in this matter are almost over, they are not fully over yet and, in any event, the disclosure required by this order would be of use on appeal or on any remand to make clear whether any treatise, article, commentary or analysis on the issues posed by this case are possibly influenced by financial relationships to the parties or counsel.”
