Oracle v Google: Big Red wants $9.3bn in Java copyright damages

HmmmYes

One of the non-technical reasons I have for not using Java is that I could never work out the revenue model.

I did dig thru the license and found some weasel words about 'only being free on desktop computer'.

The fact that I had to wade thru a large license document and sill not come away with a clear idea what or who Id be paying put me off totally.
