Google There's a bit of a story going on between Google, Acer, and Alibaba, a Chinese mobile operating system vendor. Acer wanted to ship a device with Alibaba's operating system, but Google asked them not to, and Acer complied. The reason is that Acer is a member of the Open Handset Alliance, which prohibits the promotion of non-standard Android implementations - exactly what Alibaba is shipping. On top of that, Alibaba's application store hosts pirated Android applications, including ones from Google.

First only they can proof.

Second if they do, and that is really nit difficult, then they would win huge. If they don't we know its not the truth.

Theird you can be sure that becore google went down that road they did, maybe in a non-legal way, check the product to have facts rather then being proven to ve evil, do a bad research becorehand and abuse there stand and the OHA for there private interest rather then what it was made for. Its fair to assume google k.ows what they talk about since they have lot more to lose then anybody else when proven wrong. Its fair to assume that if Alibaba does not give us the proof soon then google just nailed it.
