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."

Except that stealing has nothing to do with copyright. The key is "distribution". Copyright infringement is not theft.

Distribution does not have to be product. It seems Google makes their unit tests available to lots of folks. That is "distribution" regardless of what some developer thinks. I cannot use Mickey Mouse in my presentations whether they are internal only or not.
