Submission + - Google Calls Oracle's Java Patents Invalid (crn.com) 1

cgriffin21 writes: Google denies that its Android mobile operating system violates Java patents and copyrights now held by Oracle and in a court filing calls for an Oracle lawsuit against Google to be dismissed and the patents to be declared invalid. Google also said that by suing Google as it did back in August, Oracle has turned against the kind of open-source policies it used to support. Oracle sued Google Aug. 12 charging that Google's use of Java in Android violated seven patents as well as copyrighted material Oracle acquired when it bought Sun Microsystems in January for $7.3 billion.
