Oracle America, Inc. v. Google, Inc.
“Oracle America, Inc. v. Google, Inc. is a dispute related to Oracle’s copyright and patent claims on Google’s Android operating system. In May 2012, the jury in this case found that Google did not infringe on Oracle’s patents, and the trial judge ruled that the structure of the Java APIs used by Google was not copyrightable.[1][2][3] The parties agreed to zero dollars in statutory damages for a small amount of copied code.[4] On May 9, 2014, the Federal Circuit partially reversed the district court ruling, ruling in Oracle’s favor on the copyrightability issue, and remanding the issue of fair use to the district court.[5][6] A petition for certiorari was denied by the United States Supreme Court on June 29, 2015. A second trial began May 9, 2016, in which Oracle sought US$8.8 billion in damages.[7] On May 26, 2016, the trial jury sided in favor of Google, ruling the action to be fair use.[8]”
