Google "Sometimes the sheer wrongness of what is posted on the web leaves us speechless. Especially when it's picked up and repeated as gospel by otherwise reputable sites like Engadget. 'Google copied Oracle's Java code, pasted in a new license, and shipped it', they reported this morning. Sorry, but that just isn't true."

The guy that published his 'findings' (engadget links to his blog) used to be easily found on lwn.net kicking things out of proportion.

The current article brings what is known back to Earth. Read also the comments, as the original FUD thrower (seems to be) kicks in and try to defend his thought lines.

As was pointed, his is not a lawyer, or developer or tried to follow-up the use of the files and theirs origin very well.
