Java "Charging that Oracle has willfully disregarded the licensing terms for its own Java technology, the Apache Software Foundation has called upon other members of the Java Community Process (JCP) to vote against the next proposed version of the language, should Oracle continue to impose restrictions on open-source Java use. The nonprofit organization has also indicated that it could end its involvement in the JCP if the licensing restrictions stay in place."

While a good joke, I think that no one has figured out the Oracle angle on Mono. The Android lawsuit sorta revealed that Oracle considers microsoft to be a Java licensee that pays royalties for the Oracle patents on Java that dotNet framework uses. So Microsoft may never sue for Mono, but that doesn't mean that Oracle wont ( if anyone ever makes money off of it).
