That said, I can see Google making out a seven figure check to Oracle. Even though Oracle did not "write" the code they did purchase Sun along with all their IP which would include any code used in the standard JVM.
Like Blue said, Google knew what they were doing when the hire the ex Sun devs and used them to create Dalvik and bypass Sunâ€™s original licensing terms. So if Dalvik does include any code that could be considered IP of Oracle then they have a pretty good case.
This is a nice read which really breaks it down in layman's terms.
