Court Ruling: No Copyright Violations In Oracle-Google Java Case:

Google won its case, but Oracle got the judge to say that it has copyright claims over its use.

Sun didn’t open source it fast enough. Oracle has a database on Linux, but Oracle is in my opinion, unless shown otherwise, is that they can be worse than Microsoft with claiming its turf out to whatever it touches.

Google supposedly used “non-copyrightableAPI’s to build its own API’s in Android, they said, and good for them.

But the rest of us don’t have much staff for exploring all that, so maybe we should stay with the pure stuff if we’re going to use open source.
