Legal I'm supposed to be asleep right now, but this news kind of hit me like a ton of bricks: Oracle is suing Google over its Android mobile operating system, claiming it infringes on its patented Java technology. Not a good week to be Google, is it?

Android does not need that license. Google does not say, or want to say "this application is compatible with Java SE". Neither they claim using JME. They only mention Java the language, which does not require a license. The libraries comes partly from Apache Harmony project but Google don't claim to have a compatible JDK library either.
