Legal I'm supposed to be asleep right now, but this news kind of hit me like a ton of bricks: Oracle is suing Google over its Android mobile operating system, claiming it infringes on its patented Java technology. Not a good week to be Google, is it?

And how will using their own JRE (or using an available one apart from Oracles JRE) will make Google pay licenses to Oracle? show me the proof.

That's what the lawsuit will determine. The claim is for copyright & patent infringement.

Unlike Sun, Oracle has money, so this might be something that has been brewing for a while; only now they have the resources to engage.

To add, MeeGo or even Android are also under a bigger patent threat from MS.
