Oracle wins multi-billion dollar copyright case against Google

The Federal Circuit has ruled that Google had violated Oracle's copyright by using Oracle's Java development platform to create the Android operating system.

The case was sent to a U.S. judge in San Francisco to determine how much compensation Google owes Oracle. As of 2016, Oracle was seeking about $9 billion from Google.

In 2016, the court ruled that Google used Java software on the basis of provisions for fair use and is not required to pay Oracle.

Oracle filed a lawsuit against Google in 2010, shortly after the purchase of a Java developer - Sun Microsystems.
