For ten years, he has been trying to extract billions of dollars from the company because of Android.
It ended with one of the longest running technical achievements. About ten years after the war broke out, the U.S. Supreme Court is now 6-2 DecideGoogle has legally implemented the Java SE runtime programming interface (API) on the Android mobile operating system, so the plaintiff Oracle cannot claim compensation.
Google did not steal the operating logic held by Oracle, but cloned the interface in Java to allow the software components that make up the system to be connected to each other. Through the programming interface, the components that are actually working in the system communicate with each other: through these components, they address each other and move data to each other.
According to Oracle, the copyright of the programming interface is as much as the actual working program code. If Google survives the theft, it may hinder software innovation because some intellectual property rights are not protected.
Google argues that its fair use defends itself, saying that its condemnation will have serious consequences for software innovation: it will put software development at a disadvantage, reduce market competition, and cause great harm to consumers and businesses.
You can roughly think of this debate as the automaker is suing a spare parts company because it sells unofficial spare parts for one of the cars. The assembly uses a completely unique design and fastening method, so it is only physically compatible with the applicant’s specific car. In the lawsuit, the car manufacturer did not infringe on the specific operation of the part, but claimed that its unique shape and connection method are its intellectual property rights, so no one has the right to sell this part.
Oracle said in a public communication that it hopes to get eight to nine billion U.S. dollars in compensation from Google, but officials said they dream of receiving two to 30 billion U.S. dollars in compensation.
