Initial Thoughts on Oracle vs Google Patent Lawsuit - Miguel de Icaza

Check the full post for more insights

I would like to think that this is going to be solved with a quick settlement where Oracle will shake Google for a few billion dollars and the entire matter will be put behind.

Oracle will likely want to settle with Google under terms that will only cover Google's own use as they want to go shaking other OEM trees for more cash.

An unlikely scenario is for Google to pay the bills for all Android OEMs as they are coming out fast and strong from every corner of the world.

It occurred to me that Oracle could sell all the Java assets for Google. But Google probably passed on this opportunity back when Sun was put on the market.

From later in the post:

Google could settle current damages with Oracle, and switch to the better designed, more pleasant to use, and more open .NET platform.

Not a joke – see the link below for more context-setting.
