Oracle Joins Anti-Google Cabal

Let's welcome Oracle to the growing list of Google enemies. The database giant claims Google's Android phone violates no less than seven Java patents. Oracle is now the Java king, having acquired Sun earlier this year.

Oracle, like in all patent suits, claims the violations were no mistake but, were in fact, "willful." Oracle even claims Google co-opted Java code libraries, specs and documentation. Wonder if Android developers used Google Code Search?
