Submission + - Oracle Says Google Throws Its Users Under The Bus (blogspot.com) 3

An anonymous reader writes: The heat is on between Oracle and Google in their patent and copyright lawsuit. Oracle's lawyers just told the court that 'Google now wants to throw its licensees and users under the bus' by refusing to be liable for every Android-based device out there.
