Google Claims Oracle Lawsuit Is “Baseless”

Google has decided to respond to Oracle suing them for their use of Java in the Android OS. First there was this tweet from Tim Bray who is a Android evangelist at Google. I won’t spoil the surprise so click on the link to see what he thinks of the lawsuit. Next is what Google said via a sock puppet spokesman:

Oracle’s lawsuit is a disappointing and “baseless” attack not only against Google but also against the open-source Java community, Google spokesman Aaron Zamost said via e-mail on Friday.

“The open-source Java community goes beyond any one corporation and works every day to make the web a better place. We will strongly defend open-source standards and will continue to work with the industry to develop the Android platform,” he said.

Get ready for years and years of legal action!
