Between Google and Oracle decade long dispute over piece of code !!!! Oracle alleged that Google copied some elements of code from Java and by this infringed its copyright. Oracle claimed that copyrighted piece of code was used to build Android operating system.

A few days ago Supreme Court rejected lower court decision in Oracle’s favor. The Supreme Court’s justices decided that copied application programming interface code falling under fair use doctrine. The fair use doctrine is designed to bust innovations by removing copyright protection.

Oracle claimed $9 billion in damages for breach of its intellectual property. So, Oracle was trying to get compensation for 11500 lines of code. But Google copied that particular price of code only after failing to reach licensing agreement with Oracle.
