A lot has happened since the first lawsuit against Google for copyright infringement in Java by the mobile operating system Android. Now Oracle wants to make it in the legal dispute with new entries.
Oracle has asked a US permission to update the legal dispute with Google for Android. Oracle was indicted in October 2010, for the first Time and since then, the justification for this step, have a change in the market position of the mobile platform, very much.
Oracle seems to want to include in the lawsuit that Google is incompatible with new versions of Android against Oracle-rights and do continue in existing and in new markets and, therefore, Oracle continues to be a pity. In addition, it has developed Android is now the world’s most successful mobile operating system.

The Reuters news Agency quoted a written request to the judge, William Alsup: “The original court documents do not reflect these developments in the Mart, which includes Google’s significantly improved market position in the Search and advertising market, and the General profits of the company from the Fort forth set and extended injuries.”
In the process, Oracle wants the court to determine in how far is Java, the copyright is subject to, and in how far Google’s implementation of Java against these rights. In the course of the suit, Google calls for $ 1 billion in damages from Google.
Just Last month, the U.S. Supreme Court had a ruling that Oracle can make these claims. Google explains, however, that Java is an open-source program, and that, therefore, even the use of Parts of this programming language are no license costs would be needed.
The Supreme Court had rejected a Petition to Google, a judgment from the last year to repeal. In may, the U.S. Federal court of appeals had reversed the Federal Circuit and a judgment of the lower court and decided that the Oracle is subject to the 37 Java APIs of the copyright law. In October 2014, Google had a Petition the Supreme Court turned, and a repeal of this judgment, in view of. This Petition rejected the Court is now without a ground (In the PDF document on page 10). Now the case goes back to the district court of Northern California. There will now be decided whether and to what extent Google will have to make at Oracle in damages.
