US Supreme Court sides with Google in battle over Java copyright case

In a final blow to Oracle’s claim of well over $9 billion in damages, the US Supreme Court has stated that ’fair use’, not copyright infringement, was in play when Google used aspects of Oracle’s Java programming language in their Android platform. Justice Breyer stated that Google used ’only what was needed to allow users to put their accrued talents to work in a new and transformative program.’

Try using 5 seconds of a song or video clip on youtube, then argue "fair use" to google.😂 What wild hypocrites hiding behind""Fair us"" while denying everyone else legit fair use. They did''t write java but feel they can claim unrestricted use.
