Oracle vs. Google

Παραπέμπω και πάλι στο Roughly Drafted:
  • Major developer turns attention to Google’s Android
  • How Oracle might kill Google’s Android and software patents all at once
    In reality, Oracle is a major proponent of open software, pushing Linux and taking a stand against the notion of software patents themselves. Yes, that’s right, the company filing the year’s biggest software patent infringement case is also a major critic of the idea of software patents in general. When somebody points a gun at you, you point one back even if you don’t like the idea of guns. You might even shoot first.
    The likelihood of Android code infringing upon Oracle’s acquired Sun intellectual property is rather high, given that Google’s current CEO Eric Schmidt led the team that developed Java at Sun before arriving at Google in 2001, and that Google hired up plenty of Sun engineers.
