Oracle vs Google trial starts today, both CEOs to testify as witnesses

by: Mike AndriciApril 16, 2012

[We updated the title from “to receive” to “to request” to avoid confusions]

When Oracle sued Google back in 2010 about alleged Java-related patent violations, many were stunned by the move, especially considering the fact that Oracle is a founding member of the Linux Foundation. Given the fact that the respective patents were used in a Linux-based mobile OS (Android, of course), it was quite surprising that Oracle was going after a member of the ecosystem that they claimed to defend.

When the trial first started, Oracle expected to gain somewhere between $1B to north of $6B (yes, SIX BILLION) from Google as compensation, but now, that seems to [...]
