After what was called “the longest civil trial that I’ve ever been in” by the lawsuit’s judge himself, Google has been found not to infringe on Oracle’s patents by a jury in San Francisco.

But the Oracle vs. Google affair is worth scrutinizing for more than just the wealth of inside information that is trickling out of Judge William H. Alsup’s court. The trial has major implications for the future…
