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.

This looks like they're suing over Davlik, not Java itself. They want one Java platform, similar to when Sun sued Microsoft for a vastly modified Java.

Personally, I'm hoping this just gets resolved with Google getting a larger role within JCP, and any genuine improvements are moved back to JVM proper.

Java is in a lot of phones, and this has been one of the major reasons pick java as their language of choice. Google doesn't even make much money from Android directly, they're just the lead developers of the project.
