back in June. Judge Alsup ruled that the 37 Java APIs that Google supposedly infringed on were not copyrightable because anybody could write code that carries out similar functions to the APIs. Oracle, however, wants the court to keep pursuing the case because it believes there is strong evidence that Google infringed on its copyrights.
Oracle this week. After completely losing the legal battle with Google over Android and their Java code it looks like they've now been ordered to shell out some serious cash and pay back Google for all those pesky legal fees. Double win for Android!
Oracle vs Google appears to be over. The judge in the long-running trial to determine the validity of Oracle's copyright and patent claims on the Android platform has declared that APIs cannot be copyrighted, effectively clearing Google of all wrongdoing. The honorable Judge William Alsup declared that anyone can write code to carry out functions identical to APIs. The story isn't quite over (Oracle could appeal the decision), but it might as well be.

Estimating that the figure stays solid over 2012 (and keep in mind, it's almost certain to increase) that would mean that Google makes approximately 3.7 billion dollars on Android advertising alone. Oracle did not say how it reached this conclusion, but Free and Open Source Software advocate Florian Muller guesses that they're assuming $14 of ad revenue per Android user, per year.
