Oracle Vs Google – fight for Java and Android OS : Oracle and Google will be battling out a copyrights infringements battle in court over who owns the right to Java.Because according to Oracle, Google has used Java related tech in developing its popular Android mobile OS. And as per Oracle’s official stance Google has done this ‘knowingly, directly and repeatedly’.
Google today has responded to the lawsuit commenced by Oracle and expressed its disappointment over the issue.
We are disappointed Oracle has chosen to attack both Google and the open-source Java community with this baseless lawsuit. The open-source Java community goes beyond any one corporation and works every day to make the web a better place. We will strongly defend open-source standards and will continue to work with the industry to develop the Android platform.
Google also faces copyright violation charges because the Java code has been used without permission or appropriate licensing. But the real knockout punch for Google could be the fact that the Android is an open source OS and is being constantly worked upon by other developers to improve it and make more apps available.
Only the court can decide who is correct or wrong. Let’s wait and find out.
