ORACLE VS GOOGLE CIVIL WAR BEGINS

The rare appearance of two chiefs of the same name - Larry, at a civil court, is something special to watch. Oracle and Google are fighting over whether Google’s Android operating system violates copyright on Java, the open-source computing language that Oracle got when it acquired Sun Microsystems.

Oracle says Google went out of its way to avoid getting a license to use Java, and has shared internal Google emails to suggest as much. Google says Java is free, and cites an Oracle post to that effect. Therefore, Google says, we don’t need a license.
