Google brought evidence today that oracle may not have properly registered their Java copyrights. Even more damaging, another flub may mean Oracle won't be able to assert copyright on individual APIs...

If they are still working someone at Oracle is about to get fired.

Android is becoming a source of Income right from an individual to big tech giants. Oracle is not an exception for that.

Yup-per. As I posted in an earlier article, time for Oracle (and Larry) to wave buh-bye to the Android ship as it pulls away from the Oracle dock.

In my opinion Google took Java and implemented it into their OS not stole it entirely. Oracle's claims are stupidity to an extreme.

Oracle has dug themselves into a hole. This case is now done and dusted, as it should have been from the get go.

correct spelling is 'pour' but 'poor' seems an accurate description of Oracle's direction.

maybe the guy who was in charge of this matter got wind of a pink slip and got lazy for the rest of his time there and left it all up to fate, and as fate would have it oracle is getting bad karma for letting go an employee that might have been working for them for a long time.
