Java Well, this is about as surprising as Fiona Apple being awesome in every possible way. Google has announced that it has withdrawn itself from JavaOne, an annual conference on, well, Java. The cited reason? Oracle suing Google over Android's use of Java, of course.

I doubt that the lawyers are preventing them from going. Even if someone sues you for patents on a technology, you are still allowed to talk freely about said technology; you just aren't supposed to sell it.


Obviously you've never been sued before. Anything you say can and probably will be used against you in court, not to mention they are dealing with the law firms that drove both sides of SCO vs Novell on the same side.
