In light of the evidence, this seems like a stunningly ignorant ruling.

Wouldn`t it be great if they could BOTH lose?

@jendrian: Those 9 lines of code were found in a development version of android, wich was not meant for public release. They were used temprorarily and never ended up in the final version of android. That is basically why google was cleared of charges.

I agree with OutWest, I don`t see how an american court ruling has any relevance in the rest of the world.

it`s not really a case of

for i = 1:10

vs

do{ i = 1; ... }while(i <= 10)

(two different pieces of code that perform the exact same function); from what I had read before, Oracle found their code verbatim in Android. Google then changed the code to perform the same functions, and I lost contact with this case because I didn`t ever really care that much.

Just read it. I don`t see the issue in the judges ruling. At all.

@MacGuffin,

The jury largely agreed though. Of the 8 (I think?) claims made by oracle, the jury only really supported two of them, was undecided about one, and disagreed with the rest.

"I don`t see what`s so great about a judge setting aside a jury`s verdict"

The jury and this judge were voting on two different things. The jury was SUPPOSED to wait for the judge`s verdict on a copyright claim, which the jury then based their decision on. The jury went ahead anyway, basing their decision on the false assumption that Google was breaking copyright laws. However, the judge in charge of that case ruled Oracle`s copyright claim was too broad (and it simply was, something you`d undoubtedly be aware of had you bothered to read the article) thus rendering the jury`s judgement false.

I don`t see what`s so great about a judge setting aside a jury`s verdict for the benefit of one of the world`s richest organisations. It only goes to show what a farce the system is: even if you can get a jury to agree with you, a judge will overrule them and come up with the `right` verdict if you`re powerful enough.
