Oracle has filed a suit against Google stating that, Google used the Sun Java technology to create the operating system Android. Oracle has stated that Google has used the Sun based Java technology and it is a breach in copyright.
But this is one side of the story, James Gosling, creator of Java and veteran at SUN, stated that during the dealing of Oracle and Java, Sun had stated the amount of claim that could be acquired after property infringement. This was really interesting for Oracle’s legal men.
Google has dismissed the claims and the lawsuits, stating that the claims set by Oracle are completely baseless. He added that he was shocked that Oracle found Google to be attacked, but then they do not know about the Java open source community. The Java opensource does not belong to only one corporation but goes beyond that and helps making the WEB a better place.
Google stated that it was sure about the patent norms of Sun Java, and before it could develope Android, it had officially hired a team of Sun Java engineers. So these claims dont stand solid ground at all.
