Jury Says Google Infringed On Oracle's Copyright

It looks like the jury has come to a decision on the first part of the Google vs. Oracle trial. The jury has sided with Oracle so far but there is still more to come, including the third phase of the trial where they decided on damages.

A Northern California jury on Monday found that Google Inc infringed upon Oracle Corp's copyrights on the structure of part of the Java software programming language, in a high stakes trial over smartphone technology. However, the jury failed to decide after days of deliberation whether Google had the right to fair use of that copyrighted structure.
