A judgement by a Texas jury against Google could have major implications for the search giant and the open source world said experts. The internet titan was found guilty of infringing a patent related to the Linux kernel and fined $5m (£3.2m). The software is used by Google for its server platforms and could also extend to its Android mobile platform. The past 14 months have seen 41 patent infringement allegations levelled at Google's Android software. Altough the writer has cited 'experts' warning that many more such lawsuits will follow; I think the Oracle vs Google case will be an important one, probably more than this judgement.
