ICYMI: District Court Denies Oracle’s Move to Overturn Fair Use Ruling in Favor of Google

On May 26, 2016, a jury ruled in favor of Google’s use of Java’s API in its Android system, finding that the inclusion of the code was fair use. ¬†Oracle filed a motion for judgment as a matter of law, arguing that no reasonable jury could have found against Oracle. ¬†Last week, the district court judge denied Oracle’s motion.

Jonathan Band has a really great analysis of the district court’s twenty page order applying fair use to the case on the DisCo Project blog: “Sanity Prevails Again, Part II: The District Court Leaves the Oracle v. Google Fair Use Verdict In Place.”
