Oracle Sues Google Over Alleged Android Patent Infringement

In some rather tricky news for Google’s Android OS, Oracle has sued Google for allegedly infringing on seven patents as well as copyrights related to Java. The company alleges that Google ignored Sun’s patent portfolio for some time, and had even hired some of Sun’s Java team before Oracle bought out Sun Microsystems last year. How this will affect Android and its current momentum in the marketplace will be something to keep an eye on, but perhaps the two companies will be able to work out a settlement or find some middle ground.
