Yesterday the big news hit the internet that Oracle and Google will be battling out a copyrights infringements battle in court over the supremacy of who owns the right to Java. Today, we’ve got a latest update in the clash of the titans saga. Google today has responded to the lawsuit commenced by Oracle and expressed its disappointment over the issue but urged that it will defend its stance in the court.

The statement read something like this:

We are disappointed Oracle has chosen to attack both Google and the open-source Java community with this baseless lawsuit. The open-source Java community goes beyond any one corporation and works every day to make the web a better place. We will strongly defend open-source standards and will continue to work with the industry to develop the Android platform.

There you go, that was the first shot fired in a war that will rage for the next few weeks. No one knows who is correct at this early stage, however, sources are claiming that Oracle has filed the lawsuit against Google as “part of a larger negotiating effort by Oracle to land a sizable licensing fee.” This was noted by USA Today. Only the court can decide who is correct or wrong. Let’s wait and find out.
