Well, even if Google loses, there's also the question of how far the fair use exemption goes if API's can be copyrighted. I doubt the courts will let somebody copyright Integer add(Integer first, Integer second), for instance.
I'm not saying I agree with Oracle (I don't), I'm just hopeful that cooler heads prevail and civilization isn't finished if the courts decide that APIs are copyrightable.
Right, because nobody can possibly come up with a new idea. They've all already been invented. Also, all of the languages I mentioned are open source.
I put Java as a "standard" because Oracle controls the language. I guess nobody owns C++ so it's more true in that case.
One important omission from my list: Facebook and Hack.
Red Hat has Ceylon. Mozilla has Rust. Google has Go and Dart. Apple has Swift. Typesafe has Scala. SpringSource has Groovy. Oracle has Java. Microsoft has C#. Etc, etc, etc.
Ceylon caught a lot of flack initially from some members of the Scala community (and I guess some Java people) for "doing unnecessary work", "not listening to the community" and "not complying with standards. Apple caught the same flack for Swift with the same nonsensical arguments. Go has similarly been criticized for being weird.
The fact of the matter is that each one of these companies has their own requirements, requirements that "standard" languages like Java and C++ don't meet.
Also, which each new language comes a potential set of new innovations for new or existing languages to build upon. With Ceylon it's union types and null variables handled by built-in Optional types. With go, it's interfaces that are not explicitly implemented. Etc, etc, etc.
Bottom line: This is a good thing.

Have you ever used OS X?
And what does Apple "sound like"? Please enlighten us.
Aren't there shellshock patches available for the non-GPL 3'd versions of bash?
Because it runs on both the JVM and JS VM and is, for all intents and purposes, a dramatically improved version of Java.
What's worse is that the mother's maiden name question doesn't work:
1) If your mother divorced your father and took her maiden name.
2) If you're relatively young and your mother lives in Quebec, where women are now required to keep their maiden names.
