It appears that Google has followed through with its stated plan of requesting a mistrial in its copyright and patent battle against Oracle regarding the Android operating system's use of Java technologies.
The request comes after the jury in the case Monday returned a partial verdict on the copyright portion of the case after having been unable to reach a unanimous decision regarding Google's claims of "fair use" in copying the structure of the Java API, which is owned by Oracle.
The judge in the case has not yet responded to Google's mistrial request. We'll keep you posted.source: FOSS Patents
