Nothing they didn't plan for
Authored by: globularity on Thursday, May 24 2012 @ 09:06 PM EDT
Oracle decided to toss a legal coin and it came up tails The outcome was
predictable as in any coin toss. It was money they never had so they lost
nothing. That is the problem with the courts being so lax on these corporate
gambles. They stood to win many million at the outlay of a few million. If it
was a 50/50 toss then this would be a no brainer gamble.They should be on the
hook to lose whatever stake they claimed at the start rather then the small
change they spent on legal fees.

Hopefully their actions cost them in ways they didn't plan for.

ROFL: worth much less
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, May 25 2012 @ 03:58 PM EDT

The patent phase of the trial was less important than the copyright issues because the patents were worth much less
And as it turns out, the copyright infringements are likely exceedingly more valuable collecting statutory damages :)

The foreman appears to have recognized one truth
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, May 25 2012 @ 04:03 PM EDT

“The more tech-savvy a person is, the more difficult it is to persuade them about what limitations should be placed on technology,” Thompson said
Now if only we could get the Law and Congress to recognize that and start placing more limits rather then increasing scope of Copyrights and Patents.
