Trial in Oracle’s suit against Google begins

Oracle claims Google infringed copyright of its Android device

After two years, Oracle and Google are finally ready to go face to face in the courtroom over whether Google infringed on Oracle’s Android copyrights. Jury selection for the trial begins today.

Oracle first filed suit against Google in 2010, claiming the Internet company used Android software for mobile devices, infringing on Oracle’s Android copyrights and patents. Oracle acquired the copyrights and patents on the technology in 2010 when it acquired Sun Microsystems Inc. Oracle is seeking hundreds of millions of dollars in damages.
