  1. Oracle-Google Trial Starts Monday; Outcome Could Affect All Developers

    Oracle is also expected to cite an internal email that Google tried repeatedly to have excluded from the case. In it, a Google engineer who was asked to investigate alternatives to Java for use in Android concludes that "they all suck" and that Google must negotiate a license for Java.

    Judge William Alsup, who is hearing the case, has said in court that the email could be enough to convince a jury that Google knew it required a license for Java but pushed ahead anyway.

    Add to this the matter of Jonathan Schwartz's blog and things may get bit spicy in the courtroom.
