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?

It will be interesting to see which patents Oracle are claiming infringement on.

The list is already published. From a short glance, it's:
- some OO optimization techniques (static initialization stuff, class preloading)
- a few JIT techniques
- security policy stuff (can class X be loaded? what kind of access does it have to the rest of the world?)
