Judge Orders Oracle and Google to talk - again

Fluffeh writes "High-level executives at Google and Oracle were ordered to hold one last round of settlement talks no later then April 9th, with the trial over Google's alleged use of Java technology in Android set to begin April 16, although the last-ditch effort to avoid a trial seems unlikely to succeed. Oracle initially accused Google of violating seven patents, but has since dropped most of them. This is due to the US Patent and Trademark Office ruling the patents described technology that was not patentable. Two patents assigned to the Oracle-owned Sun Microsystems remain: #6,061,520 which covers "an improvement over conventional systems for initializing static arrays by reducing the amount of code executed by the virtual machine to statically initialize an array," and #RE38,104 which covers a type of compiler and interpreter."
