The Oracle-Google Case Will Decide the Future of Software
WIRED

Oracle completed its acquisition of Sun, the makers of the Java programming language and platform, in January 2010. In August of that year, Oracle sued Google for copyright and patent infringement over the company's use of Java-related technology in Android. Among other things, Oracle claimed that Google's use of the Java APIs in Android violated its copyright. In 2012, a Washington DC district court ruled in Google's favor, finding that the APIs were not subject to copyright. Unfortunately for Google, an appeals court overturned that ruling and the US Supreme Court declined to hear the case.
