How a 5-year-old blog post might turn the tide in Oracle v. Google Android case | VentureBeat

Another case study in the value of business blogs
"A blog post written by former Sun CEO Jonathan Schwartz (pictured) has come into play in a tense courtroom this morning.
In Oracle’s ongoing lawsuit against Google, Judge William Alsup has allowed Google to use as evidence a particularly telling post from 2007 — a post that Oracle had already carefully scrubbed off the Internet and tried to exclude from the trial.
Oracle is suing Google over Android, claiming that Google had no right or permission to use the Oracle/Sun-owned Java programming language in the Google-owned Android operating system.
However, as Android was launching many years ago, Schwartz (who led Sun before it was acquired by Oracle in 2010), wrote an extremely positive blog post about Java’s use in Android."
