Google Wins Java Copyright Case – Thurrott.com

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled today in Google v. Oracle and sided 6-2 with the online giant in determining that its copying of Java code constitutes fair use.

“We assume, for argument’s sake, that the material [Google copied] was copyrightable,” the ruling notes. “But we hold that the copying here at issue nonetheless constituted a fair use. Hence, Google’s copying did not violate the copyright law.”
