A San Francisco federal judge had decided that Oracle could not claim copyright protection on parts of Java, but on Friday the three-judge Federal Circuit panel reversed that ruling.

"We conclude that a set of commands to instruct a computer to carry out desired operations may contain expression that is eligible for copyright protection," Federal Circuit Judge Kathleen O'Malley wrote.

This is terrible news for the technology industry and us enthusiasts.

This case should have ended with this. Everything after that is a sham.

Why in the world would Google switch to Microsoft crap? Microsoft should never be trusted.
Maybe switching to Qt makes the most sense if Google ever decides to dump Dalvik, but the ecosystem is already built to run on Dalvik, so it would be insane to switch to anything else for the foreseeable future.
