US court to hear long-running Google vs. Oracle case


With potentially billions of dollars on the line, the US Supreme Court said Friday it will hear arguments in a long-running copyright case between tech giants Google and Oracle involving the Android mobile operating system. The complex case pitting two Silicon Valley giants against each other has raged on since 2010, and already saw many twists and turns before a jury found in favor of Google only to have that decision reversed by a circuit court. That prompted Google’s appeal to the nation’s highest court this past March.
