SCOTUS refuses to review ruling on software copyrights
By Thom Holwerda on 2015-06-29 17:01:28

On Monday, the Supreme Court opted not to review a 2014 ruling on copyright law that held Google's Android operating system infringed copyrights relating to Oracle's Java platform. This is a disaster for the software industry.

Here's the problem: the digital economy depends on gadgets and software being able to communicate seamlessly. Last year's decision by the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals opened the possibility that efforts to make software work together better could trigger copyright liability. The result could be more compatibility problems and less innovation.

The most disgusting and most despicable lawsuit in technology. Oracle is a horrible, horrible company.
