Oracle kicks off appeal in Google Android lawsuit

by: Simon HillOctober 4, 2012
When Oracle took Google to court over Android things didn’t turn out so well for it. As you might expect Oracle is not satisfied with an outcome that left them holding a $4 million bill for Google’s court costs. The inevitable appeal has been filed with the United States District Court in California.

by: J. Angelo RacomaSeptember 5, 2012
The legal saga between Oracle and Google has come to an end, with the judge deciding to throw the book at Oracle and order them to pay for Google's legal fees. Oracle gets $0 and even has to pay Google a million dollars, even as it originally sought $6 billion in patent-related damages.

Google names paid consultants in Oracle patent case, including prominent Stanford law professor

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 28, 2012
Google already submitted their list, although the company continues to insist that "neither it nor its counsel has paid an author, journalist, commentator or blogger to report or comment on any issues in this case." The list includes two categories: current and former Google employees, and individuals who work with organizations that are currently receiving donations from Google.

Prominent patent blogger Florian Mueller, has been named by Oracle as a paid consultant on competition issues.

Judge orders Oracle and Google to disclose if they paid bloggers

by: LucianAugust 8, 2012

The lawsuit between Oracle and Google is not yet over, and Judge Alsup orders the two parties to disclose if they paid bloggers or journalists to cover the trial. This may prove important in the next trial, considering that Oracle is planning to appeal Judge Alsup’s verdict.

Here’s the text of the order:

The Court is concerned that the parties and/or counsel herein may have retained or paid print or internet authors, journalists, commentators or bloggers who have and/or may publish comments on the issues in this case. Although proceedings in this matter are almost over, they are not fully over yet and, in any event, the disclosure required by this [...]

Oracle might have to pay $4 million for Google’s legal expenses

by: LucianJuly 7, 2012

The Oracle vs Google trial was one of the biggest legal spats in the tech industry in quite a while, with Oracle standing to gain billions of dollars from Google. At least that’s what Oracle wanted us (and the judge) to believe when they filed the lawsuit against Google. Judge Alsup has repeatedly asked Oracle to drastically reduce their damages claims and patent infringement claims, even before the trial started, because he never considered that Oracle deserved to win that much, even if Google did infringe on their intellectual property.

When the trial started, the tides started to quickly turn in Google’s favor, with the judge saying that, if Oracle won, [...]

Zip, zero, nada: Google to pay nothing to Oracle, as Oracle will try to appeal

by: LucianJune 21, 2012

 

It wasn’t too long ago that quite a few market watchers thought the trial between Oracle and Google will be the end of Android. There’s little to zero chance for anyone to still believe that now, since Google won most of the trial and all the important issues, like the APIs copyrighting issue or the patent infringement allegations.

One of the little things that Google did lose on are those, by now famous, 9 lines of code that were written by a Google employee back when he was working for Sun, and that he thought he could reuse in Android. Still, it was only 9 lines of code out of 15 million, so, as you can imagine, the potential damages that [...]

Pow! Oracle told by judge to cover for Google’s legal expenses

by: Bams SadewoJune 5, 2012

The smackdown against Oracle in the courtroom continues. It was only last week that victory sided with Google, after the judge who presided over the case didn’t find Google guilty of infringing Oracle’s patents. What the public didn’t know is that the same judge apparently had ordered Oracle to pay for Google’s legal fees!

Perhaps Oracle should heed the old adage that says ‘if at first you don’t succeed in getting that $6 billion settlement from Google, you should refrain from trying it out again and again’ – especially at the risk of ticking off Judge William Alsup, which Oracle seems to have successfully done. The judge, who lectured Oracle for wasting [...]

Google’s Android in the clear as judge says Oracle Java APIs elements not copyrightable

by: Chris SmithJune 1, 2012

Google’s Android mobile operating system is being targeted by various competing companies in different patent-based lawsuits, with Oracle being one of them. But it looks like Google managed to score one more important victory in this particular legal battle, in a lawsuit we have been following for quite some time.

Judge William Alsup ruled yesterday that Oracle Java APIs elements are not copyrightable, which means Android is in the clear and Oracle is not likely to see the big payout it was hoping for. This is the second important victory for Google in a matter of days, as only last week the jury of the Oracle vs Google case decided that [...]

The verdict is out: Google found not guilty in patent trial with Oracle, copyright battle to continue

by: AdrianMay 24, 2012

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. The ruling sees Google win a major battle in the monstrous legal fight against Oracle, but the war is still far from finished.

The jury needed over a week to deliberate on the patent infringement claims, but, in the end, ruled that Oracle “has not proven by a preponderance of the evidence” that Google infringes claims 11, 27, 29, 39, 40 and 41 of United States Patent Number RE38,104 or claim 1 and 20 of United States Patent Number 6,061,520.

Just as a refresher, patent [...]
