I never excused any of these patent trolls, i just stated the obvious that Google does enforce its IP and does so with an iron fist. Most people cave without it going to courts though... (many open source projects built around android have seen the wrath of google ip lawyers)
business week "The complaint targets Google’s Dalvik virtual machine, one of the software programs used to run applications on the phones. Oracle claims the software was developed using the Java platform. Google hired former Sun engineers so it knew of the Java technology, Oracle said in the complaint."
Oracle is a cutthroat company.. maybe their 7.3 billion dollar purchase of Sun always had this in the back of their mind.. i dunno.
Software patents suck though :)
