Oracle VRS Google the ‘knock off’ effect

23 Jan

The Oracle/ Google Infringement bandwagon continues to move along Oracle VRS Google Various non-legal personalities also give their valuable ‘legal’ insight into the matter.

The upshot of all this ties nicely into the masses of Chinese Pad devices currently on the market , since 99% of them also infringe on the licensing requirements of Java/Android AND Linux.

This is mainly due to the fact that these devices utilize modified Linux kernel code making the kernel compatible with the particular brand of hardware being used.
But since these Chinese companies do not release the source code (as is required by the GPL licenses), there is the opportunity for competitors to prevent product being shipped into Europe and the States simply by crying ‘Copyright abuse’.

Lets see if this year hots up the Pad market sufficiently to force this situation.
