Google "Sometimes the sheer wrongness of what is posted on the web leaves us speechless. Especially when it's picked up and repeated as gospel by otherwise reputable sites like Engadget.

Alas, there is a difference between technical and legal implications of the case, well summed up by a level-headed engadget:

Google can remove the infriging files at once and Android will still run fine, but Oracle is going to win the case.
