Google and Oracle legal battle reaches a conclusion

Last month a jury decided that Google hadn’t infringed two of Oracle’s patents when creating its Android operating system - and a judge has now ruled that the case doesn’t involve a breach of copyright either. The case dates back to 2010 when Oracle claimed a significant part of the Android mobile operating system was “derivative of Oracle’s copyrighted Java API packages”. Google had responded by saying the Java programming language was free to use, which meant it could use the Java-related APIs in Android.

Oracle is expected to appeal.
