"Does Google's Android operating system infringe on Oracle's Java patents and copyrights? That's the claim being made by Oracle this week in a major lawsuit against Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) over its use of Java in the mobile operating system.

""In developing Android, Google knowingly, directly and repeatedly infringed Oracle's Java-related intellectual property. This lawsuit seeks appropriate remedies for their infringement," Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL) spokesperson Karen Tillman said in a statement.

"A spokesperson for Oracle, which is seeking a jury trial to address its complaints, declined to elaborate further."
