Jury says Google didn’t infringe Oracle’s patent

Oracle said Google’s Android violated its IP

A California jury has decided that Google Inc.’s Android mobile platform does not infringe Oracle Corp.’s patents.

In the case that dates back to 2010, Oracle claimed that Google’s Android technology violated the intellectual property rights Oracle held to the Java programming language. Google fought back, saying Oracle couldn’t copyright certain parts of Java, which is an open-source software. Yesterday, a California jury agreed with Google.
