+ - Court: Oracle Entitled To Copyright Protection Over Some Parts of Java->

An anonymous reader writes: Remember the court battle between Google and Oracle? It's the one where Oracle claimed Android violated Oracle's patents and copyright related to Java. Oracle asked for over $6 billion in compensation, and ended up getting nothing. Well, it's still going, and the tide is turning somewhat in Oracle's favor. An appeals court decided that Oracle can claim copyright over some parts of Java. It's a complicated ruling (PDF) — parts of it went Google's way and parts of it went Oracle's way. A jury's earlier finding of infringement has been reinstated, and now it's up to Google to justify its actions under fair use.
