Legal Some people (you know who) predicted the Oracle-Google lawsuit would spell doom for Google and Android. Well, turns out this was all a huge fuss over nothing. Oracle's damages claim started at an idiotic $6 billion - but the final claim is less than $100 million. Oracle's patent trolling is turning into a huge failure of epic proportions.

Despite you paying attention to this patent stuff or any other court cases for some time you still don't know how it works. You keep presenting it in a childish good vs bad and I win and you lose scenario. Or worse, "I lost, but I didn't want to win anyway, so I still got the better of you, nananah".

They start with a claim of Big X and present as evidence Big Y. Most cases don't end in a victory for either party, but in a settlement. During the proceedings Big X goes down to Small X and Big Y to Small Y. This sets things up for a settlement both parties agree too and live goes on.
