More adventures in Java-land
The legal battle between Oracle and Google just keeps getting better and better. Google has answered Oracle’s amended complaint that Android infringed on Oracle’s Java patents with a wide-ranging defense that includes charges that Oracle doctored code to bolster its case against Google. Google argues that Oracle’s Java patents are invalid and have been misused. And if in fact Android infringes on Oracle’s patents, the blame rests with third-parties who are deploying Android, Google claims. Google seems to be throwing everything at Oracle’s suit in hopes of getting Oracle to settle or to win an outright victory.
