Oracle gives opening statement in Google case with 91 slides
Arguing that "Android is not a clean room implementation," Oracle says Google copied Java code.
Oracle kicked off its Java patent and copyright lawsuit against Google and its Android mobile operating system with a 91-page slide deck.
The presentation, which was provided by Oracle as a link ahead of opening statements, outlines the company's lawsuit over Android. Oracle's argument is that Android is a ripoff of Java and it wants compensation and damages.
For those paying attention to Oracle lawsuits -- notably the TomorrowNow case vs. SAP -- the presentation sounds familiar. Oracle goes for the jugular.
Oracle makes extensive use of e-mail excerpts in the presentation and quotes Google executives arguing that they need to work around Java or plow through it and worry about the consequences later. Arguing that "Android is not a clean room implementation," Oracle said that Google copied Java code. In addition, Oracle argued that Google harmed the Java community by fragmenting the code with Android.
Here are a few of the slides Oracle uses to make its case (see the slideshow embedded above for more):
