I always got the impression Java the language was copyrighted, based on the hoops I had to jump through to get a copy to install. Maybe I was mistaken. But doesn't the phrase "owner of Java" imply that?
I wonder if the fact that it's Java will strengthen Google's case, because Java is its API. You can do a lot with Perl without ever using a module, and its use of sigils and statement modifiers give it a look all its own. There's such a think as Perlish syntax. But Java without its classes, if there's anything left at all, is just wordy C.
