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.

The lawsuit seemed to be just an extra money-grab that they salivated over during the purchase negotiations.

More like calculated attack against Android. Done as a favour for a friend. We have to remember that late Steve Jobs was friends with Oracle boss to the level that when Elliot got (re)married Jobs took the wedding photos... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Ellison#Personal_life
