Google wins Software Code infringement lawsuit with Fair Use Defense
Oracle and Google were embroiled in a heated litigation over software code Google used (approximately 11,000 lines of Java API code) which they incorporated into their Android OS. Oracle found out and filed a lawsuit for copyright infringement. Google argued it was a "fair use" of Oracle's software code and the Supreme Court of the United States (after applying the 4-factor fair use test) agreed ON EACH POINT. Thus, Google was able to avoid a 8 billion dollar lawsuit.
PODCAST: Listen to Attorney Steve® go over the Supreme Court's rationale in reaching a 6-2 ruling for Google.
