I think Oracle is just being greedyneedy..
They better not fucking destroy Android.
I will FUCKING KILL THEM.
Edit: Destroy all Android phones and everything related? (Including possibly Google?)
"They are demanding a jury trial"
...because they know that the jury won't understand what is going on and they can win by putting on a show with a fancy lawyer.
Oracle are whinging about everything.
I don't want the annihilation of Google and Android, plus all the Android phones in the world.
oracle are dickheads
They own Java, though.
Which, for some random reason, makes them want to own EVERYTHING digitally important in the world?
I wouldn't be surprised if they sued my Computer science teacher for making us use Java. Fuck these Oracle assholes.
Java has a license - the Android team (allegedly, I have no idea) used it against the license.
Sorry, I just feel really pissed and sad and tired and-
this lawsuit is just as stupid as the idiot who bought unix and thinks that means linus torvalds owes him money
Reverse-engineering Java? Tsk tsk...
I hop it ain't true. I love me some Android. It's the only thing fueling the Anti-Apple guys.
Why would you wanna use cruddy ol' Java for anything anyway? Blechh.
1) The topic of the article linked in the OP is fucking retarded (I didn't read the article due to how inaccurate the title was, typical hype-driving blogspam shit.
2) There is no possible way this lawsuit could "destroy" Android or the concept of open source. Anyone who thinks that's even a possible outcome knows absolutely nothing.
3) Whoever at Google approved the release of android without proper licensing took the chance that Sun wouldn't sue. When Oracle bought Sun, that changed the game and it's Google's own fault for not licensing the Java VM at that point.
Summary: Google will have to pay some retribution due to their own poor decision.
Assuming this is even legit and that they DID use Java without getting the licensing.
It's a 100% legitimate claim.
I think Ars Technica's article is very insightful and not negative: http://arstechnica.com/open-source/news/20...credibility.ars
Oracle is practically basing their (as you call it) "legitimate claim" on a legal loophole in GPLv2. The Android stuff and Dalvik was created from J2SE, which is supposedly free and open source, and not J2ME, which requires licensing fees. Oracle just wants a cut of Android's success that it does not deserve.
This is not a copyright infringement claim at all, Oracle is trying to collect on some ludicrous software patents. Propel adoption of Java using the GPL, then collect from it later.
I am disappointed in Google. In my opinion this will affect them entirely on a professional level. This is just something that is unprofessional because of the way it was handled. Before you release your product make sure everything is ready to go with it. As we can see one little opening leaves consequences.
Aw dammit... does this mean i wont be able to get my Droid? Cause im kinda in between phones right now... fml
I don't see what Google has to worry about
