Oracle sues Google for patent infringement
REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. — Oracle Corp. has filed a patent-infringement lawsuit against Google Inc.
Oracle says Google’s Android system for mobile phones infringes on its patented Java technology.
Google says it can’t comment because it hasn’t reviewed the lawsuit.
Oracle makes database software and other technology. Java is a computer programming language Oracle acquired when it bought Sun Microsystems.
Java can be used as a platform for building applications for smart phones and other mobile devices.
