Oracle files massive lawsuit against Google

Oracle has been suing Google for different things for ages, mainly it's about Android. They lost their last lawsuit in May where they claimed that Android is using APIs from programming language Java, which is owned by Oracle. The verdict found that millions of lines of Android code used 37 APIs (around 11k lines of code) from Java. However, the court found in favor of Google, as Sun gave Java away for free for anyone to use and as such, Google was free to use those APIs.

On Feb 9th, 2017 Oracle filed an appeal. Oracle's appeal says that "Google started trial knowing a fact it kept secret from everyone else: It was days away from announcing that 'the full functionality of Android would soon be working on desktops and laptops, not just on smartphones and tablets.'"

Oracle, should it win the case eventually, is looking for billions in damages. And such verdict could have a big impact on the way that developers freely use and share code today.
