Google is fighting to hide an email in which it seems to admit to knowingly infringing the Java patents, but with the text already public it will be a hard fight to win. Both companies have filed their arguments, with Oracle putting the case for exposing the email, while Google argues that it is privileged communication. The letter detailing both sides has been helpfully uploaded by Florian Mueller of FOSS Patents, but basically Google argues that the text was a client-attorney communication, while Oracle claims that's bollocks. In another thread I labelled Google as being a thief with regard to patents on Android, now I guess, we can expand that theft charge bit further. It make one wonder how the hell is one of the largest corporations in the world is being run.
