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.

Google should switch to C#.


Seriously? Because Microsoft would never try to do anything to hurt Android?
You think they wouldn't weasel out of any perceived promises they've made if it meant they get to be the top mobile OS provider?
