"Google has violated no copyright, because copyright law does not confer ownership over any and all ways to implement a function or specification, no matter how creative the copyrighted implementation or specification may be", said U. S. District Judge William Alsup today in his decision.
It is being said by Google that according to the court's decision, computer languages are the basis for the creation of any software. The court in California has heard that the company has complied with the rights of using only parts of Oracle's Java programming language to create Android introduced in 2007.
The case had started in 2010 after Oracle had acquired Sun Microsystems, says the report. The company was responsible for the rights to the Java programming language. Claiming Google had violated its Java-related copyrights and patents, Oracle filed a legal action against it.
It has been claiming that Google has broken its promise of 'write once, run anywhere'. Oracle also claims that such an act by the company endangers the defense of intellectual property rights against many firms. According to it, Google has simply fragmented the Java language by using the same.
However, Oracle has decided to follow the court’s decision and maintain protection for innovation, along with supporting Java community with more than 9 million developers and law abiding enterprises.
