    What are the likely results, if Oracle wins,
    for people who in good faith purchased Android powered devices?

    I am sure one can't hold people 'accountable' in this scenario, as they didn't (or rather never) knew what was going on behind the scenes.

    Not my point... (not sure I had a point per se)
    but it seems to me that if Google looses,
    that is bad news for all owners of Android powered devices.
    Just wondering what the scope of that bad news might be.

    At worst (provided that Google looses in court), Google may have to pay some sort of penalties / license royalties in future. Afterall, it is all about money in the end.

    I agree, it'll just cost Google Inc, I doubt it will affect sales or development of Android in general.
