Google Answers Oracle’s Claims And Lawsuits, Strengthens Its Position In The Case

Google has made a significant comeback in the Google-Oracle lawsuit and has presented strong answers to the lawsuit by clearly stating that the Dalvik VM is not the same as the Java VM and cannot be held as being the same.

Google blames the claims to be abstract and wants the patents declared invalid. According to Google, Oracle has deliberately compared the Oracle J2SE and the Android version of the code and made it look like the same by removing all copyright headers and expressive materials.

Google also blamed Oracle in their attitude towards the matter saying they,

impermissibly expand[ed] the scope of the Patents-in-Suit by requiring licensees to license items not covered by Oracle’s alleged intellectual property in order to receive a license to Oracle’s alleged intellectual property.

Google points out that the Dalvik VM is a part of Android that was manufactured by the OHA (Open Handset Alliance). It has nothing (or negligible traces) to do with the Dalvik VM code.
