Now an offered made by Google to pay Oracle a percentage of the revenue from its Android mobile operating system, only if the verdict in the patent infringement suit goes against the search giant.

An offer roughly $2.8 million has rejected by Oracle stating its too low for the two patents remaining in case, according to a court filing late on Tuesday.

Future proposal:

1) Google would be paying Oracle 0.5 per cent of Android revenue on one patent until it expires this December.

2)0.015 per cent on a second patent until it expires in April 2018.
