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.

C# and .NET would actually solve all of Google's problems (both current and upcoming) with Oracle.


What about the upcoming problems with Microsoft? You really think MS wouldn't do their best to bring Android down, like they already are doing?
