Oracle Forfeits Some Claims Against Google

     SAN FRANCISCO (CN) – Oracle will not fight an attempt to exclude some of its patent-infringement claims in litigation over the use of Java in Google’s Android operating system.



     Oracle attorneys agreed in a brief filed on Thursday that Google is not liable under certain federal law, 35 USC 271 (f), with respect to any patent infringement alleged in the case. Oracle did not waive its rights to pursue claims against Google under a different subsection, 35 USC 271 (b)-(c), or its rights to pursue claims involving foreign currency revenue that are attributable to infringement in the United States or any other theory of liability apart from the cited section.
     Earlier this month Google urged a federal judge to dismiss patent-infringement allegations that it copied Oracle’s Java code, arguing that the code installed on Android devices came from foreign device makers.
