in reply to Copyright on languages

Today’s jury verdict that Android does not infringe Oracle’s patents was a victory not just for Google but the entire Android ecosystem.

Google did not breach Oracle patents, a court has found

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

The start of some sanity?

    Phase 1 hasn't been finished yet. The jury found that Google infringed on any Copyrights that might exist on the API, but the judge hasn't yet ruled on whether there are any Copyrights to infringe.

    And of course, there's a strong possibility of appeals.
