Episode 19: Google & Oracle's Copyright Feud Rings In Another Year
A multi-year copyright battle between two tech giants could end with major changes in store for the software industry in 2018. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit will weigh whether Alphabet Inc.’s Google infringed on Oracle America Corp.’s copyright when it copied bits of code, known as APIs, from Oracle’s Java programming language, or if that was a fair use under copyright law. The outcome of the case could ultimately upend how software developers and tech companies create new products that are compatible with one another, Bloomberg Law legal editor Anandashankar Mazumdar said in a recent episode of Code & Conduit.
