Google and Oracle Caught in Argument


Google and Oracle Caught in Argument

According to the filing in the court on Tuesday when Google proposed Oracle for paying a percentage of Android revenue if it could confirm copyright violation of the mobile operating technology at a forthcoming trial, Oracle refused to accept the offer because it was quite low.

It was in 2010 when Google was sued by Oracle Corp because it claimed that the Android Technology that was associated with the leader of Internet search violated the patents associated with Oracle's Java. Now a trial has been planned for April 16 before District Judge William Alsup in San Francisco.

Oracle has been also sued for intentionally violating the copyright rules. It has argued that in addition of patents that Google is liable to pay, it should also pay hundreds of millions of dollars.

Now, both the companies are asked to come up with a solution to this trial. Alsup has asked them to simplify it. This trial is expected to last for next 8 weeks. In response to this, Google has come up with a proposal: it says: "If Oracle succeeded in proving patent infringement, Google would not spend time fighting about damages if Oracle agreed to its figures".
