ORACLE LOST AGAINST GOOGLE : Android is safe !

Google is not guilty of Java patents violation.

This is the verdict returned by 10 jurors from the federal court in San Francisco ( California) in the trial opposing Google to Oracle.

They concluded unanimously that Oracle – owners of Java-  could not prove that Google’s Android represented Java patents violation.

” We are thankful of the verdict” Google Robert Van Nest lawyer said while leaving court.

Oracle’s lawyer remained silent on the result.

Oracle, which acquired in January 2010 Sun Microsystems asked Google to stop using the technology and paying damages considering that Android’s base consisted of Java Applications.

But according to Google, Sun Microsystems declared that Java would be  open source and authorized all developers to use it from 2006-2007.

It is a very important win for Google and a disaster for Oracle.

This fight related to intellectual property shows how complicated it became to use programs and makes of electronic industry a more and more closed world.

This trial is a sad message for innovation.
