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."

So Microsoft may never sue for Mono, but that doesn't mean that Oracle wont ( if anyone ever makes money off of it).


True, It is quite obvious that with the patent promise for dotNET Microsoft cannot possibly sue Mono.

What is worse however is that Oracle is probably in a position to sue over any VM based language, including Python, Ruby, Lua, etc. Not just Mono.
