This is a bit disingenuous isn't it? The whole point is that Google ripped off Java to create Android in that "Davlik" is basically Java by another name. Technically, Oracle sued over Java, but the whole point of the suit is that Android infringed on their IP.
The thing that people should really sit up and take notice of about the Oracle/Google case is that it's pretty self-evident that Google did *intentionally* rip of Java in the creation of Davlik. Thera are mountains of similarity between the two, and there are emails from Google employees that clearly state their intentions to rip off Java and change it just enough so they wouldn't have to pay anything or get caught. There are many literary figures that have had their careers ended by so-called plagiarism wherein the small phrases they were supposed to have copied were much less damning than the pages and pages of similarities between Java and Davlik and no proof that they actually copied has ever come forward.
The lesson there is that Oracle lost this rather obvious case. The jury just didn't see it, and the jury in this case might not see the obviousness of Samsung copying Apple either. It's not so much about who is right and wrong and what the law is as what the average juror at the end of the day is going to believe. The facts are secondary as they were in the Oracle case.
What I think tripped up Oracle in their suit was that there were some comments about Java being "open source" and that's what the jury bought into to form their verdict.
Apple, on the other hand, from day one, has asserted that patents are anything but open source. I was under the impression that they weren't even something that Apple would license until some of the negotiations between Apple and Samscum came to light in the course of this trial.
In reading Apple's presentation carefully, it seems as if some of the unique features of iOS are not only being infringed upon by Android but also by Samscum's Bada, Microsoft Windows8 mobile/Metro/whatever and some other phone OSs. Apple may be over-reaching and this is going to be determined by the outcome of this trial. I hope Apple does prevail, but that's just my slant.
