Android Patent Infringement

James Gosling Is Not Surprised by Oracle-Google Patent Dispute

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.
