Oracle Sues Google Over Use of Java in Android


Oracle Corp. said Thursday it has filed a copyright-infringement lawsuit against Google Inc., alleging that the Internet search giant infringed on intellectual property related to the Java software that Oracle acquired when it purchased Sun Microsystems Inc.

Hmm. Makes no sense to me, but the story is light on technical details. Google sure is picking up enemies, though.

Update: Tom Krazit has a copy of Oracle’s complaint and the patent numbers they claim Google is violating.
