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. 'Google copied Oracle's Java code, pasted in a new license, and shipped it', they reported this morning. Sorry, but that just isn't true."

Where's the money come in?

It's never been distributed for monetary gain, and the violation seems to consist of a license change.

How can it affect devices, if it's not in them?

So Oracle might get some cash from Google, I see it as reaching into the millions, but that's a drop in the bucket for Google.

I can sum up the situation with a single sarcastic comment: Big fscking deal.
