Google cleared of infringing Java patents
Google was cleared of infringing Java software patents within its Android operating system by a federal jury. The case was brought against Google by Java owner Oracle and had threatened to shake up the smartphone market, in which Android-running handsets are number one. By dismissing the patent infringement claims, Google now only faces a charge of copyright infringement. Oracle is free to appeal but has not yet said whether it will.
