Re: This article conflates two important issues

That's the big problem with this case. Oracle has mashed them BOTH together into an "all or nothing" in a Xanatos Gambit. If they lose, FOSS loses a lot of its legal strength. If they win, Google's loses control over Android's primary code base (because even ART depends on the Dalvik code to start with). Either way, Oracle wins.
