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?

I found in Scribd:
http://www.scribd.com/doc/35811761/Oracle-s-complaint-against-Googl...

Had no time to read the content. It may clarify what exactly is being argued by Oracle.

Already studying that thing. Remarkably non-verbose for a legal document.

It says The Android operating system software "stack" consists of Java applications running on a Java-based object-oriented application framework, and core libraries running on a "Dalvik" virtual machine (VM) - I'm no Android expert, but I IIRC what it runs is not Java per se (although being similar), and the VM was not intended to be compatible with Sun/Oracle's, so that claim is false. And if so, then the rest which is based on this claim should be trash.

Oracle is not suing because they think Google claimed Dalvik is Java.

They sue it because it is not Java, and because it is competitor to Java.
