Jury: Android Doesn't Violate Oracle Patents

In a devastating blow to Oracle's claims against Google for creating a Java variant, the jury has found for Google in the meat of the case.

A Federal Court jury in California has found that Google did not violate Oracle's Java patents when it created Android.

This was the second of 3 trial phases. In the first, the jury found that Google infringed Oracle's copyrighted Java APIs.

But the defeat is a devastating one for Oracle, which has little prospect now of obtaining significant damages against Google.

The jury verdict form may be found here on the District Court web site. Other case documents may be found on this page.
