Who is going to win the big legal battle between Google and Oracle?
dthomas 2 years ago
I feel like I'm watching a very long hockey game between Oracle and Google - big boys playing for big bucks. I think Google is more likely to prevail; Java was promoted like crazy as open source, and Google worked with Sun during the early days of Android development. On the other hand Oracle has a few perfect copy Java APIs that they can show Google used, which only matters if they can show open use of those APIs was not allowed. So, who is most likely to prevail in the patent dispute over Java, Google or Oracle?
