Oracle has filed a lawsuit against Google, charging that its Android phone software infringes Oracle patents and copyrights related to Java, Oracle said Thursday.
"In developing Android, Google knowingly, directly and repeatedly infringed Oracle's Java-related intellectual property. This lawsuit seeks appropriate remedies for their infringement," Oracle spokeswoman Karen Tillman said in a statement.
It seems like the many people that have worried about Java being a company controlled language as opposed to a community controlled one are correct, especially those that suspected that Oracle would be much more closed about it than Sun was... This is a great way to kill the language and make people afraid to use OpenJDK in any commercial software.
