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.
