Oracle sues Google, says Android infringes seven Java patents (plus unspecified copyrights)

Last night Oracle announced that it filed a lawsuit in Northern California against Google, claiming that Android infringes seven Java patents (which Oracle acquired along with Sun in January) as well as some unspecified Java-related copyrights.

The document filed by Oracle with the United States District Court for the Northern District of California has been published by VentureBeat.

ZDNet thinks that this “may be the most gigantic patent battle ever seen in this industry.”

Some aspects of this are unclear, so I believe this is mostly the time to ask the right questions, and time will provide the answers, probably sooner rather than later.
