Oracle’s Lawsuit Against Google for Java Patent Violation

In August 2010, Oracle Corporation files against Google's Android Operating System for violating Java's patent and copyrights as Android uses software called Dalvik, which is similar to Java.
Despite of Father-of-java-James-Gosling  on Google's side, it seems no luck for search engine giant Google Inc

What Oracle outlines?
"Google’s Android competes with Oracle America’s Java as an operating system software platform for cellular telephones and other mobile devices.  The Android operating system software “stack” consists of Java applications running on a Java-based object-oriented application framework, and core libraries running on a “Dalvik” virtual machine (VM) that features just-in-time (JIT) compilation.  Google actively distributes Android (including without limitation the Dalvik VM and the Android software development kit) and promotes its use by manufacturers of products and applications. Android (including without limitation the Dalvik VM and the Android software  development kit) and devices that operate Android infringe one or more claims of each of United States Patents Nos. 6,125,447; 6,192,476; 5,966,702; 7,426,720; RE38,104; 6,910,205; and 6,061,520."
