Last year, we wrote about an effort by Public Citizen along with lawyers Eric Goldman and Martin Schwimmer, to have RosettaStone and Google remove the massive number of redactions that were made in the legal filings each has put forth in the companies' trademark dispute. As Paul Levy of Public Citizen noted at the time, this case will have important public policy impact on others, and it's only fair that the details be known. Despite being secretive upfront, it seems that RosettaStone has mostly been amenable to this and has provided unredacted filings (which have shown that the redacted info never should have been redacted in the first place). Yet, it appears that Google is still fighting this. Eric Goldman points out that Google appears to be working to avoid having to reveal what it redacted, though it's not clear why. Of course, all this really does is make you wonder what Google is hiding.
