    Android is it nothing but stolen ideas. Oracle and Google will start it's landmark IP Case on April 16th with Jury Selection. This case is bigger then any Apple vs Google court cases as of yet, and if Oracle wins they could shut down the whole android movement (although I don't think that would ever happen). Here is the link to the article for you to get more details on the case itself.

    If there was any indication that the decision would hamper Android's movement and perhaps screech it to a halt Google will most likely find a way to settle and keep their product alive. Google as too much riding on Android to just let it dissolve.

    ^ This.

    I really wish all these damn lawsuits would just stop already. It's been out of hand and ridiculous for a while now, especially the patent trolling. I can't believe how rampant it has become over the last couple of years.

    Do you believe its fair to sue someone for something you feel is rightfully yours or not? They seem to have a fair argument here.

    I think the whole thing is ridiculous. Not just this case, but all the patent trolling and IP cases that have occurred in the last few years. It wasn't like this, well not nearly as rampant nor publicized to the extent it is now, a few years ago.

    I figure they will make a deal, it's all about getting a piece of the pie.

    Google once showed a blogpost by then Sun CEO, Jon Schwarts who said he was giving his blessing for Google to use Java in Android.

    Verbal agreements like this can stand up in court. Just because Oracle bought Sun after the fact, doesn't mean suddenly Google is infringing.

    Sounds like Oracle is just being greedy

    Five years after Sun already knew about it and they are suing? Now that there are 150 million Android phones they are suing? Seems a little late to be making a stink about this.
