Legal The entire complaint Oracle lobbed at Google has been available online for a while now, and after reading it through with my total lack of any knowledge of the inner workings of the American legal system, a few things did stand out to me as peculiar. We'll have to wait for a more detailed analysis by someone qualified to do so. Also, a few other notes about this case I've picked up online.

Considering that Dalvik is register-based and the normal JVM is stack-based, and the binary format used for the classes is substantially different in Dalvik than the normal JVM, I'm going to guess there is very little code you could actually just grab and use.

Google has been very careful to say that you use a java-like language to write android apps. I doubt they were careless with the code when they were so careful in the PR/Documentation
