Legal "[...] despite Oracle pointing out the commercial success of Android - which would tend to weigh against a finding of fair use - it was clear that Judge Alsup wasn't inclined to side with the company. The judge even scolded Oracle counsel Michael Jacobs when he first argued his case, pointing out that the company's legal team had insisted on a jury trial and that 'now we got their verdict and you want something else'." Someone must be having a bad day.

The judge reminded Michael Jacobs, lawyer for Oracle, that they had asked for the jury to rule on the copyright issue and that now that it was done he wasn't going to overrule their verdict and say that Google had no right to fair use.

The point is that the jury did not say that Google has right to fair use. The question is unanswered.
