Oracle: Google directly copied Java code

Amendment to Oracle's patent-infringement lawsuit against Google claims the latter "directly copied" from the former's Java code.

Oracle has amended its patent-infringement lawsuit against Google over Android and provided line-by-line comparisons in its exhibits.

In its tweaked complaint, Oracle ups the ante against Google, which has called the lawsuit baseless. Oracle, which filed suit against Google over Android in August, makes this allegation:

In at least several instances, Android computer program code also was directly copied from copyrighted Oracle America code. For example, as may be readily seen in Exhibit J, the source code in Android's "" class is nearly identical to "" in Oracle America's Java, not just in name, but in the source code on a line-for-line basis.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
