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.

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 [...]
