"In August last year Oracle sued Google for infringing Java
patents and copyright by developing Android. Oracle argues that
Android uses technology derived from Java and therefore infringes
multiple patents. It wants compensation, but with most court
documents and details not publicly available,
itâ€™s hard to know specifics.
"However, new documents made available late last week revealed
just how much Oracle thinks is an acceptable damages payment for
Google to make. According to an expert Oracle hired, Google could
be looking at a bill of between $1.4 billion and as much as $6.1
billion for its infringements."
