Oracle in Error 0

Bad guys lose suit against not-quite-so-bad guys.

Oracle will, no doubt, appeal, because it has more money than God. Google, to its credit, will no doubt continue to fight.

As an aside, I point out that Oracle has no qualms about using other people’s stuff. It markets something called “Oracle Linux” (if I remember correctly, it used to be called “Ironclad Linux”), which is little more than Red Hat Enterprise Linux (commonly referred to as RHEL) repackaged with an extra added price tag. That is quite legal under the terms of the GPL that governs must free and open-source software, but it also highlights Oracle’s self-serving lack of–er–consistency.
