Submission + - Oracle going after Google again->

bobthesungeek76036 writes: Oracle is not happy with Judge Alsup's May 2012 ruling in it's copyright infringment case against Google. This judge should rule over some copyright cases:

"So long as the specific code used to implement a method is different, anyone is free under the Copyright Act to write his or her own code to carry out exactly the same function or specification of any methods used in the Java API," Alsup wrote in his ruling. "It does not matter that the declaration or method header lines are identical. Duplication of the command structure is necessary for interoperability."
