But doesn't the phrase "owner of Java" imply that?

Me calling Oracle the owner of Java has no legal significance. It's uncontested that Oracle owns the trademark on the name Java. It owns the copyright on their their code, libraries, binaries, etc. That is what I meant what I colloquially called them the owner of Java.

I wonder if the fact that it's Java will strengthen Google's case, because Java is its API.

That seems to be a major argument of Google's.

You can do a lot with Perl without ever using a module

Any idea how unique that is? Assembler, C, C++, Java and bash separate grammar from functionality. I believe LISP, Scheme and Haskell do too, but I really don't know them. Pascal and VB do provide at least a print statement.

I think Perl would prefer to have the two separate. In the development of Perl5, a lot of emphasis is being placed on features that give the ability to extend perl without changing perl itself.
