The judge overseeing the Oracle vs. Google lawsuit has just ruled that both parties have to disclose if they paid off any journalists or bloggers to write or comment on the case, according to court documents filed today.

Apparently each company made payments to someone who wrote about the case.

Oracle confirms paying a blogger but Google names no-one [bbc.co.uk]
Oracle has disclosed two names after it and Google were ordered to reveal financial ties to people who might have influenced coverage of a trial.

Oracle said it had relationships with blogger Florian Mueller and Stanford University's Prof Paul Goldstein.

Google said it did not pay any "journalists, bloggers, or other commentators to write about this case".

However, the search giant added that it needed further guidance before being able to disclose others it had financial ties to.
