Oracle vs Google Case: "Google executives knew this day would come" [news.cnet.com]
Oracle made its closing statements during the first segment of the Oracle-Google trial this morning, and it all boils down to this: Google is making excuses for taking the property of Sun Microsystems -- and now Oracle -- and using it on Android.

Nevertheless, Jacobs said that there is really only one, simple question that needs to be answered here: Can one company use another company's property without permission?

"If Google can just take the APIs and be forgiven under fair use, that licensing falls apart," Jacobs warned. "That is the deep threat that Android represents to the entire Java community."
