Databasing giant Oracle, locked into settlement talks with Google as part of a lawsuit over Google’s Android mobile operating system, has stated that it intends to seek not only royalties but a legal order to cease the distribution of Android. Oracle acquired Sun Microsystems, which developed the Java software system. Oracle’s filing states that the “key issue in this case” is whether “Google can use Oracle’s intellectual property to create an incompatible clone of Java”. The implication is that Oracle will either seek to get a massive slice of licensing revenue from Google or demand that Google rebuild Android from the ground up without any infringement on Java – something that would render existing Android software obsolete.
