Java jury finds Google guilty of infringement: Now what?

Meh

Groklaw is biased in favour of anything they consider "open sourced"

Then why in the Apple vs Pystar case they favoured Apple ?

Because Groklaw is biased in favour of whom they think is abiding to law. Don't tell me Apple is loved now by Open Source fans.

FAIL

Oracle got it wrong

"The overwhelming evidence demonstrated that Google knew it needed a license and that its unauthorized fork of Java in Android shattered Java's central write once run anywhere principle"

Question 4A: "Has Google proven that Sun and/or Oracle engaged in conduct Sun and/or Oracle knew or should have known would reasonably lead Google to believe that it would not need a license to use the structure, sequence, and organization of the copyrighted compilable code?"

Jury Verdict: YES.

So or Oracle's legal counsel is utterly incompetent - and I do really doubt it - or this phrase is just a PR stunt.
