Google is Sued by Oracle over Android Software

Oracle Corp. dropped a major legal bombshell on Google Inc. late Thursday. In a press release, Oracle spokeswoman Karen Tillman said, “In developing Android, Google knowingly, directly and repeatedly infringed Oracle’s Java-related intellectual property.”  Oracle acquired Java through its $5.6 billion purchase of Sun Microsystems earlier this year.  Analysts said the suit against Google could signal that Oracle intends to be more aggressive in seeking licensees for Java, a technology that is used in many types of Internet-based products.  The suit seeks unspecified damages and an injunction against “continued acts of infringement,” raising concerns for the growing number of mobile phones that rely on Android.  A Google spokesman said he could not comment on the lawsuit as the company had not had a chance to review it yet.  Analysts say Google’s Android operating system uses portions of Java technology.  The case is Oracle of America Inc. v Google Inc, in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.
