Oracle is Playing for Peanuts

Trial is set for April 16 in Oracle v Google and the list of patents Oracle is claiming have been violated is now gutted. The court recently ruled that the entire value of SUN’s stuff is $561 million for the purposes of the trial and since Google used only a fraction of that, Oracle’s maximum payout is much less. Oracle’s minimum payout is $0 because the copyright violation is de minimus at most.
