Oracle appeals ruling in lawsuitover Google's use of Java

Oracle announced today it plans to appeal the verdict in its long-running patent and copyright battle with Google over Java.

The database giant filed a "notice of appeal" with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California for an appeals court review of Judge William Alsup's decision in the trial, which found that Oracle's Java API was not copyrightable.

Oracle sued Google for copyright infringement related to Google's use of 37 Java APIs used on its Android mobile operating system. Google argued it was free to use them because the Java programming language is free to use, and the APIs are required to use the language.

Oracle argued that Google knowingly used the APIs without a license from Sun Microsystems, which was bought by Oracle in 2010.

In May, a jury handed down a partial verdict that found that Google infringed the overall structure, sequence, and organization of Java's language, but offered no opinion on the matter of fair use.

However, Judge Alsup later ruled that the APIs were noncopyrightable , leading to the dismissal of Oracle's copyright infringement claim

The jury also found that Google did not infringe on two of the Oracle Java patents.
