Larry Page in court says Google did nothing wrong to Oracle

didn't there was a ruling that a code is not property therefor it cant be IP. I'm not sure if this reflects the same here but if it does page is right

Your link is to a criminal case - unfortunately for Google, that ruling has no bearing on their civil case. It's hard to remember with all of the corporate BS (from all sides), but using someone else's patent isn't really "stealing" in a legal sense, it's more akin to skipping out on your rent for a couple months - you could be sued for it, but you can't go to jail for it.

Unfortunately for Oracle (and Larry), the patent claims seem to be the weakest. The strongest case appears to be copyright infringement and if copyright infringement is what tags Android, all Google needs to do is change whatever about Android is found to infringe whatever copyright is asserted. Worst case, Google has to write a check to Oracle for what - $10 or $12 million? Maybe not even that much.
Sounds like a pyrrhic victory to me.

Bhahaha! Mr. Larry, the liar. They did ''nothing'' to Apple, Microsoft, Oracle, Nokia and that is why there are thousands of court trials against Giggle. They also ''invented'' Handroid, by juuust a little ''help'' from RIM and Apple. Only fools believe you, Mr. Larry.
