Re: Security
I must admit I do enjoy watching these two heavyweights fight it out. If not Java then what ?

@Joe: I agree. The security issues with Java persist and will continue to do so. Organizations all over are finding ways to get out of Java and use an alternate platform because they literally have no control over the black box. It can very easily turn into a security nightmare.

Settlement
I don't think why settlement should be a major issue here. Google has deep pockets and they can afford to take money out and get done with it. Java is on the decline and is actually going to be obsolete soon. I don't think they can do much with the platform anyway. So as long as they are able to get something out of it, it should be fine. A settlement is a win-win.

[...] copyright protection to fuel innovation," said Oracle.

 

LOL.  Said the gloating, bloated, billionaire fox guarding the hen house.  The reality is that copyright in the US is broken and benefits only the deep-pocketed.
