Oracle's dangerous claim: APIs can be copyrighted


If Oracle succeeds in enforcing its hold on Java APIs, the software industry will drown in shameless legal challenges

Oracle filed a lawsuit against Google in August 2010, charging that the Android mobile OS infringes Oracle patents and copyrights related to Java, which Oracle acquired when it purchased Sun Microsystems. The trial opened last week and is expected to take at least two months.

They cannot win this suit. If they do, it's going to get downright ugly...

This kind of makes me happy that I'm slowly forgetting how to write in Java.

Oracle: You used our programming language (that we bought) and made it more popular; we're suing!
Google: What is this? We don't even.

Unfortunately, no. They have a lot of catching up (to Apple) that I hope they don't do.

Actually, no. The current King is Kodak.

Apple is by far the King of Patent Trolling. You being an Apple fan can't accept this fact.

But I'll play along with your statement...

If the current King is Kodak, what does that make Apple?
Quote:
In a court filing on Tuesday in New York federal bankruptcy court, Apple said it wanted to file a complaint against Kodak at the International Trade Commission.

Apple said the suit would seek to ban Kodak from importing various products, such as printers and digital cameras, that it believes infringes its patents.

1. Apple doesn't sell printers, yet Kodak is infringing on Apple's patents?

2. Kodak INVENTED the digital camera, 'nuff said.
