Oracle has filed a lawsuit against Google, claiming that Google's Android mobile operating system violates patents and copyrights owned by Oracle. According to Oracle, it acquired a number of Java patents and copyrights when it closed on the acquisition of Sun Microsystems earlier this year. Android, while based on Linux, uses some Java software as well. Oracle believes that Google has willfully infringed on portions of seven different patents, as Google has hired Java programs from Sun. It is seeking an immediate injunction to prevent Google from building and distributing Android any further. It is also seeking unspecified monetary damages. Google has not responded to the lawsuit yet.
