Oracle Says Google Throws Its Users Under The Bus

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 3 years ago

Android 3

An anonymous reader writes "The heat is on between Oracle and Google in their patent and copyright lawsuit. Oracle's lawyers just told the court that 'Google now wants to throw its licensees and users under the bus' by refusing to be liable for every Android-based device out there. It's also about the burden of proof. Oracle has produced almost 400 pages of claim charts and other material to prove infringements based on the public codebase, but Google wants to see this for individual devices. Groklaw thinks Oracle 'saw the case as a slam dunk, and Google is not cooperating.' FOSS Patents (Florian Mueller) says Google is at the top of a billion-dollar pyramid, is projected to generate mobile advertising income to the tune of $1.3 billion next year thanks to Android, and should 'assume responsibility' and solve the problem 'for the entire ecosystem' because otherwise Oracle might sue device makers, operators, or even app developers or users."

Is Oracle trolling? (1)

Why am I the only one to comment? The only response I see even close to the 'truth' is a Google loving SEO blog: http://www.beanstalk-inc.com/blog/ [beanstalk-inc.com] I must be the only one to take this seriously? Everyone else just chuckled and went 'Oracle.. ahhh you so silly!' ?
