Legal We're far from done with the Oracle v. Google lawsuit. The search giant has responded to the lawsuit, and Miguel De Icaza has provided a very interesting insight into the case. His report has been confirmed by James Gosling, known as the father of Java who left Sun right after the merger. Icaza speculates that the potential to monetise on Java by suing Google was pitched by Jonathan Schwartz during Sun's sales talks with Oracle. Oh boy.

Integration talks, i.e. after purchase.
'Confirming' incorrect rumours spread by biased party? Puhlease, all this negative Java panic.. in such a case, Oracle is required to notify infringers to allow them to remedy situation - it would be enough to replace harmony libs with openjdk (to get implied patent grants from oracle) and gpl dalvik.
Situation with Oracle owning Java sucks, but openjdk + jcp is much better than anything else OSS has in this space.
