Tech Revenues From Lawsuits In Defense Of Intellectual Property

Oracle Sues Google For $1B In Stolen IP Used In The Android OS

Personally - I wish I had $2 billion in order to be sued for $1B.

From what I have read in the article - Oracle has a strong case.

The e-mail trail shows that Google officials were aware of how close they came to consuming Oracle/Sun's intellectual property from the Java programming language.  They took action to attempt to scrub overt use of Java technology but they leverage it as the development language for Android programs in the SDK.

I predict a negotiated settlement but Oracle has a strong set of claims.
