back to article 'Call Corporate Of Apple and tell them to stop there persuit!!'

This was the week when the Oracle v Google trial over the Chocolate Factory's use of Java in the Android OS rumbled on, and the jury didn't help matters much.

    Are you kidding me??

    There (location). Example - There is an error in your HEADLINE.

    Their (possession). Example - Their editor must be really good.

    Bonus: The "w" in the word "quote" is no longer used; it has been replaced with the more efficient "e."

    Great first read of the day. Thanks.

    Come on commentards, how can you analyse the headline for every grammatical error yet NOT notice the bloomin' quote marks!

      Their you go!

      I think most of them are already off work / on their way to the pub. So the commentards showing up here are probably the junior ones, anyways.

      Please, be gentle with them.

      BTW, juniors - notice how I did not use one's :-)

    A bit misleading to pick a badly written comment on the discussion part of a site, and make it look as if the site itself is run by illiterate fools.

    Hmmm, pretty much completely wrong about the Google v. Oracle case. The jury didn't decide that Google infringed on Oracle's rights. The question posed to them was a conditional 'if APIs are a protected right, did Goggle use them'. The jury could only answer "yes".

    But the judge still has to rule if APIs are protected by copyright. Long practice and precedent says that they are not. If they are not, the question and jury verdict is moot.
