Reusing software 'interfaces' is fine, Google tells Supreme Court, pleads: Think of the devs!

Do you prefer Google taking its place? If the part were reversed, I don't think Google would have let Oracle took advantage of Google's IP.

Anyway Google admitted it copied Java without licensing it just because it need a lot of developers quickly to try to lock-in the market into Android as soon as possible - cutting costs and time reusing as much code and tools as possible.

Google is also free to publish all the hidden code in its Google services in Android, if it's so worried about interoperability and let developers free.... and let user remove its applications.
