Google asks U.S. Supreme Court to end Oracle copyright case
Alphabet Inc`s Google
Google urged the high court to rule that its copying of Oracle`s Java programming language to create the Android operating system was permissible under U.S. copyright law.
A jury cleared Google in 2016, but the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit reversed that verdict in March 2018 and set the stage for a jury trial to determine monetary damages.
Google said the Federal Circuit`s ruling in favour of Oracle was a "devastating one-two punch at the software industry" that would chill innovation.
