Legal We've got some really good news for all of you: the jury verdict in the patent phase of the Oracle v. Google trial is in, and it's a unanimous one: no patent infringement. This means that the most Oracle could possibly get out of this is a few hundred thousand dollars if (and that's a very big if) judge Alsup rules that APIs are copyrightable. Oracle pretty much lost everything. Permit me to say, in your face, Ellison.

And i hope this sets a precedence for all patent infringement trials to come!

The interesting thing about jury trials is that regardless of facts and law - a jury can still rule in favor of whomever they believe is in the right.

Long live jury nullification!

This is why I never try to avoid jury duty...
