Jury Rules In Favor of Google in Oracle Infringement Suit

May 24, 2012

A significant decision in the patent infringement case, Oracle v Google, has been reached and a jury has decided that Google's involvement with Android did not infringe on Oracle's patents with Java, according to the Washington Post.  As a result, there will be no damages awarded.

Oracle claimed that Google infringed on two different patents and while the jury decided that Google did violate one of the patents, it was unclear if the claim in question fell under fair use. This is not necessarily the end of the case as Oracle will very likely appeal the ruling.
