Instead of extracting billions from Google for
violating its Java software patents in Android, Oracle will be
lucky to get over a $100-million from its intellectual property
(IP) lawsuit. That?s chump change by mega-company standards.
Taking into consideration the legal costs, Oracle could have
made more money if it had just offered Google an open-ended Java
license in the first place. Larry Ellison, Oracle?s God-King and
CEO, will have to wait another year before buying the sharks with
lasers on their heads to guard his mega-yacht.
