Larry Page Spars With Oracle Attorney At Android Trial

I guess you can call this sparring. I'm kinda bummed, I was actually hoping for a "you can't handle the truth!" moment or something after reading that headline. Oh well, we still have time, the trial isn't over yet.

"Yes, I already testified I think Android is significant to Google," said Page, who testified for about a half hour. Bicks asked Page if Google paid Oracle for the use of Java, which was developed by Sun Micro systems in the early 1990s and acquired by Oracle in 2010. "I think when Sun established Java it was established as an open source thing," Page said. Bicks repeated the question. "No we didn't pay for the free and open things," Page said.
