Re: Oracle's point of view

You are completely ignoring the fact that for more than ten years Sun (the prior owner who was bought out by Oracle) _encouraged_ exactly what Google did: they wanted third parties to use it, in order to increase the range and demand for their Java product.

I certainly don't agree with a whole lot of Google's behavior, but they're in the right on this one.
