‘Do Not Develop in the Open’

Information from the Oracle v. Google lawsuit includes these bullet points from an internal Google presentation:

  • Do not develop in the open. Instead, make source code available after innovation is complete

  • Lead device concept: Give early access to the software to partners who build and distribute devices to our specification (ie [sic], Motorola and Verizon). They get a non-contractual time to market advantage and in return they align to our standard.
