Oracle Tries Again to Get Satisfaction in Java Case

Oracle is not letting go of its Java patent infringement beef against Google despite its sound drubbing last spring when U.S. District Court Judge William Alsup ruled that programming APIs were not subject to copyright protection. Last week, Oracle took the case to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. The high-visibility copyright violation and patent infringement case played out in a multiphase trial last summer. In the copyright portion, the jurors were asked to decide whether Google used Oracle’s copyrighted material in 37 Java APIs written for Android — and if it did, whether it could be considered fair use.
