Google wins ruling on Android's use of US software developer Oracle's Java

   Jun 1, 3:53 pm

Washington, June 1 (ANI): A U.S. federal court has dismissed software developer Oracle's claims that Internet search giant Google infringed copyrights on its Java programming language.

District Judge William Alsup ruled that Google was free to replicate and use elements of Oracle's Java programming language when it developed Android software.

"Copyright law does not confer ownership over any and all ways' to implement Java," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Alsup, as saying.

"Google has violated no copyright, it being undisputed that Google's implementations are different," Alsup added.

Oracle sued Google in 2010 alleging it infringed copyrights when it used Oracle's Java application programming elements to create Android .

Jurors ruled on May 7 that Google infringed Oracle's copyrights, but gave no decision on whether it was 'fair use'

According to the paper, without a jury verdict on that question, Alsup said Oracle couldn't seek any damages, which it had estimated at 1 billion dollars, from Google. (ANI)
