Yes, Deirdre was just talking about this.  One story is that (possibly
among other problems Google has in that area) Google managers made
damaging statements about 'stealing' Java (I paraphrase from memory) in
written communications that they intended to be covered by
attorney-client privilege but were negligently conveyed to non-lawyers,
hence not covered after all.

However, I have to confess that the Oracle v. Google case has been such
a thick forest of motions and sundry shenanigans that I've not even
tried to keep up.

Thank you for caring about quoting practices.  Here's a link that might
be useful for doing that in YahooMailClassic:
