Alsup censuring Google over paid journalist filing
Authored by: Anonymous on Monday, August 20 2012 @ 03:14 PM EDT
"Google suggests that it has paid so many commenters that it will be impossible to list them all," Alsup wrote. "Please simply do your best but the impossible is not required. Oracle managed to do it."

looks like interpreted Google's statement in a rather cynical way, which is probably part of his job. I don't remember reading that from it, but perhaps its the donations to universities and organizations he wants to see enumerated. I saw mention somewhere that he's not bothered about AdSense.

The August 7 order was not limited to authors “paid . . . to report or comment” or to “quid pro quo” situations. Rather, the order was designed to bring to light authors whose statements about the issues in the case might have been influenced by the receipt of money from Google or Oracle.
...
Oracle managed to do it. Google can do it too by listing all commenters known by Google to have received payments as consultants, contractors, vendors, or employees. As for organizations receiving money, they need not be listed unless one of its employees was a commenter. Gifts to universities can be ignored.

So how does Google control what a recipient of money thinks or writes after receiving said donation or adsense cents? Notice the good judge leaves the ivory towers untainted, hmmph.
