Oracle v. Google - Copyright & Patent Trial - Day 5

It's day 5 of the Oracle v. Google trial for copyright and patent infringement. Here are the more interesting articles that I read tonight:

Android, Java, and the tech behind Oracle v. Google (FAQ). CNET - Stephen Shankland explains how Sun/Oracle's Java relates to Google's Android, the history leading up to the case, and some of Oracle slides presented to show how Google is infringing its copyrights. Mr. Shankland is a great tech writer and gives a nice introduction to this case.

Day 5 - Oracle v. Google Trial  - Groklaw is an unabashed Google cheerleader, but if you forgive them of that fact it can be fun reading.

The Lindholm testimony and the reality of Java licensing options - FOSS Patents. Florian Mueller gives detailed coverage of Timothy Lindholm's "famous" email and his testimony on day 4 of the trial, plus the details of the Java licensing options that drove Google into a collision with Oracle.
