Having analyzed Google's latest filings in the case, I have no more doubt that Oracle's damages expert calculated damages that would, at least if tripled due to willful infringement, amount to a billion-dollar figure. And that's just damages: if Oracle wins, Google will also face an injunction and need to negotiate a license deal (in the alternative, all existing Dalvik-based apps would have to be ported to a new app platform).
Yesterday Google filed the Daubert motion, which amounts to 48 pages including supporting declarations. In addition, there are more than 500 pages of non-sealed supporting documents and an unknown number of pages of sealed exhibits. Even some of the non-sealed material is redacted, and it makes reference to the report written by Oracle's expert, which is not publicly available. That's why it's very difficult to analyze all of what Google writes. Oracle will reply soon, and then Google may file a response to Oracle's answer, and thereafter the judge will decide.
