Oracle triumphs over Google lawsuit

On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court refused in giving ears to Google’s appeal of copyright infringement suit delivered against them by Oracle.

Oracle sued Google for infringing Java’s intellectual property rights. They made use of Java’s Application Programming Interface (API) and Java Class Library in writing Android’s API with the intention of tranquil construction for Android programmers. This lawsuit was brought in court on 2012 seeking damages of an estimate of $1 billion, demanding that its consumption of Java in Android despoiled several Java patents; but Oracle lost the first phase of the battle. In 2014, the case was brought to higher court which gave Oracle an advantage. This then triggered Google to make an action and appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

So far, the assessment of the case’s legal perspective is denied. But given the jury’s decision of deadlocked “fair-use” under the legal doctrine, the case currently retreats to the lower court. Since Google’s certainty sought to fight the copyright infringement issue first, Oracle has an imposing fortuitous of victory.
