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 "PolicyNodeImpl.java" class is nearly identical to "PolicyNodeImpl.java" in Oracle America's Java, not just in name, but in the source code on a line-for-line basis.
