Oracle v. Google - Day 10 Filings - Indirect Infringement Claims Dropped ~mw
Sunday, April 29 2012 @ 12:30 PM EDT

Oracle has agreed to drop its assertions of indirect infringement from the case. The parties have filed a joint stipulation that vicarious and contributory copyright infringement will be dropped, and Judge Alsup has entered the stipulation. (1001 [PDF; Text])

In all likelihood dropping the indirect infringement claims is a result of the time limits of the trial. The parties consumed far more time on the primary claim of direct infringement than, I suspect, Oracle anticipated, and that simply left no time to put on a case for the indirect infringement claims. Nothing in the stipulation would prevent Oracle, if it is successful on the direct infringement claims, from bringing a new suit on just the assertion of indirect infringement, although that is unlikely.

The parties have also agreed on handouts to be provided to the jury covering an agreed timeline, identification of the witnesses, and identification of the attorneys handling the case. (1002 [PDF; Text, including Exhibits])
