Rarely can I reveal the names of my expert witness customers, as most "intellectual property" cases are sealed as a term of their settlement. I generally am under a court order not to divulge my participation, or even the existence of the court order. But the judge in Oracle v. Google has required both companies to reveal "paid bloggers". I was named, but as an expert witness rather than a paid blogger. As it happens, all of the blogging I did about the case was before I was hired, and none of it was complimentary to my customer.
