As you may have read, Google is being sued by Oracle, who claims Google is infringing on several patents it holds, related to Java. These patents came to Oracle through its recent acquisition of Sun Microsystems.

"In developing Android, Google knowingly, directly and repeatedly infringed Oracle’s Java-related intellectual property," said Oracle spokesperson Karen Tillman. "This lawsuit seeks appropriate remedies for their infringement."

TechCrunch obtained the following statment from Google on the matter:

"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."

Kara Swisher has the entire complaint in a Scribd document:

FINAL Complaint

The complaint deals with a total of seven patents. Jason Kincaid notes that Sun Microsystems was able to get $1.6 billion out of Microsoft related to patent disputes and antitrust issues.

    When Google was being (still are I think) investigated by the EU for antitrust issues, they blamed Microsoft for being behind the move and didn’t address the issues. Now Oracle sues them and they say the patent infringement suit is an attack on the Java community. Bunch of whiners. Everybody can read through their manipulation. I think Google needs to be split by the government ASAP.
