Congratulations to the Google team in their copyright infringement victory against Oracle in
Oracle America Inc. vs. Google, Inc.
Oracle was seeking nearly $9 Billion for Google’s use of a small amount of Java language in building their Android platform to power smartphones. In a previous trial, the judge ruled that Oracle’s code was not subject to copyright. Then the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit reversed his decision. This retrial was to determine if Google’s use was Fair Use, and the jury returned a verdict in Google’s favor.
We are proud to have worked with the trial team.
