    Amanda Doran

    On April 5, 2021, the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) released an opinion in the matter of Google, LLC v. Oracle America, Inc., in which the Court ruled that Google did not violate copyright law when the technology giant used parts of Oracle’s Java patents and copyrights in it’s Android devices.

    The dispute began in August 2010, when Oracle alleged Google’s Android smartphone software platform infringed upon 37 Oracle Java API packages. The SCOTUS ruling will allow software users and developers to more easily integrate software between interfaces, without concern of infringing copyrights to a certain degree.
