Oracle Sues Google: Android infringing on Java patents

By Updated on

Google could have a new battle on their hands as Oracle said yesterday that it has filed a federal lawsuit against the company, which alleges that the Android operating system was built on Oracle’s Java software without permission.

Brandon Bailey and Mike Swift of MercuryNews are reporting that an Oracle spokeswoman Karen Tillman said in a statement, “In developing Android, Google knowingly, directly and repeatedly infringed Oracle’s Java-related intellectual property. This lawsuit seeks appropriate remedies for their infringement.”

The lawsuit was filed in a San Francisco U.S. District Court and will seek a trial by jury. Google have so far not been available for comment on the lawsuit, but will surely be making a statement soon. Since it was first released in 2008 Android has been rapidly growing as an operating system for Smartphone’s.

Oracle acquired the Java technology and patents when it bought Sun Microsystems earlier this year. It is not known how much damages Oracle are seeking from Google, but the lawsuit could be used as a tool for a larger negotiating move.

     guess the first US Oi band, as well as intersecting with the early DC hard core scene.  Oh also the copy of Skinhead Glory is signed, which I will again note, doesn’t really add anything from my point of view. Is anyone kicking their heels for having Wendel Blow’s autograph?
