""I've already testified that I know the APIs and declarations are in the phones," said Page. "They comprise the Java language."

"When Sun established Java, they established it as an open source thing," Page said. "I believe the APIs we used were pretty open. No, we didn't pay for the free and open things."

"So you didn't get a license?" Bicks asked.

"I'm not a lawyer," Page said. "I don't know the vagaries of licensing.""
