James Gosling has posted his thoughts on the news that Oracle are planning a lawsuit against Google’s Android OS.
James Gosling has posted his thoughts on the news that Oracle has filed
a patent and copyright infringement against Google’s Android OS,
calling it “not a big surprise,” and revealing that, during
integration meetings between Sun and Oracle, the team were
“grilled” about this patent situation.
“Filing patent suits was never in Sun’s genetic code,” he says,
before revealing that he plans to avoid getting involved in the
legal dispute, if at all possible – apparently, Oracle has only
selected one of Gosling’s patents (RE38,104) to sue over.
