Oracle And Google Figuring Out What Next In The Trial?

Posted on May 17 2012 - 5:05am by Editorial Staff

With Oracle and Google trial entering into the third phase, Judge William Alsulp asked the companies attorneys to provide a brief stating that where the trial could go next. Discussing the facts and figures of the trial, all of this also depends on whether or not the judge rules if the 37 Java APIs are copyrightable in the first place.

If the judge decides that the SSO of the APIs are not copyrightable, then he could award the statutory damages to Oracle. If this happens, the trial will move to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit else if this not happen than it will end up with a new trial and a new set of jury.

However, if they find for Google and that there is no patent infringement, then the jury would be dismissed and their work in this case would be done.
