Oracle fights Google’s ‘fair use’ ruling with appeal

Oracle is fighting against Google's 'fair use' ruling made by Judge William H. Alsup 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.
