After a little over a week of deliberation, the jury in the Oracle vs Google trial has finally reached their verdict: Android did not infringe on any of Oracle’s patents. It was long and drawn out but the jury has officially been dismissed, with no demand to enter into the 3rd phase of the trials (dealing with damages). For awhile there, it wasn’t looking so good for Google. The same jury ruled back on May 7th that Google had, in fact, infringed on Oracle’s copyrights, but were only able to agree on just one that warranted damages of around 0,000. Pocket change, folks.
Of course, being stuck in a room, forced to look over Java code for hours on end, would push anyone to their limits. 2010 is when this whole debacle started, and it’s only today that we’re seeing justice being served. Google is celebrating.
