Google was handed a major victory against Oracle in court today when the jury cleared it of all eight counts of patent infringement. Oracle claimed that Google infringed on patents pertaining to the Android platform. Though Google was cleared of patent infringement, it was found guilty of violating Oracle's copyrights. The jury involved with the copyright case was unable to determine if Google's use of the Java language APIs was fair use or not, leaving that verdict moot. There are still some loose ends to tie up in the case, including a debate about whether or not Oracle's code could be copyrighted at all. Oracle has yet to say if it will appeal today's not-guilty verdict in the patent case.
