Oracle has filed a lawsuit against Google charging that its Android phone software [reportedly] "infringes Oracle patents and copyrights related to Java." According to a company representative: "You can't just take a Java application from a Sun environment, where it's licensed, and run it on Android. You have to recompile it to Dalvik."
- Oracle alleges that Google was aware of its patents and "willfully and deliberately" infringed them. It also says Google hired some of Sun's Java engineers.
