Google Got Out Of That $9B Oracle Lawsuit Scot-Free
Oracle says it will appeal the ruling.By Katie Link | May 26, 2016
A six-year copyright battle between Google and Oracle is finally over.
In 2010, Oracle sued Google for $9 billion, claiming the tech giant used parts of its Java software in Android phones without asking for permission.
On Thursday, a federal jury unanimously ruled Google made fair use of the code under copyright law. The decision was closely watched by many in the tech industry, as it could determine usage for other products.
