Google's key points of evidence
Google has put together a presentation to defend its use of Java code in Android, the central issue in Oracle's patent and copyright lawsuit against the search giant.
The case, which entered its third day on Friday, hinges on whether Google's mobile operating system infringes on copyright and patents related to Java, which Oracle took charge of after its acquisition of Sun. For example, the Dalvik virtual machine in Android uses Java APIs, which Google argues it is allowed to do. Oracle disputes this.
The slideshow handed to the San Francisco court as part of Google's opening statement comes in at 71 pages — 20 shorter than the document presented by Oracle. This selection highlights Google's arguments in its defence and begins with Google's key points in evidence.
