Google Asks for Judgement on Java Copyrights

benfrog writes "Google asked the court last night for a judgement that would invalidate at least part of the copyrights Oracle claims over Java APIs. "Google argued that the source code and object code for implementing Oracle's APIs are not derivative works of the copyrighted work as a whole. Further, Google said the alleged copying of Java code is 'de minimus,' or insignificant, and 'thus non-actionable.' Groklaw has copies of Google's brief as well as Oracle's response. The case could have a verdict as soon as next week."
