Dr Cockburn is apparently an ‘expert’ who feels that Oracle is being ‘done’ for not seeing money for java use. The only problem is that while in theory java as a language works anywhere, getting it working on a thing is not something the official java suppliers do.
There are also open source versions of java that do not use the bits of ‘copyright*’ and closed source.
Cockburn is an lecturer in ‘business innovation’ i do not see how court proceedings and his attempts to define the damages for one side have left judges and others with an impression that something is rather wrong. Groklaw is naturally the place to go for your impression but Cockburn is an insane cheerleader for billionaires would seem to better suited to the courts of east texas and perhaps utah
I can’t see how innovation is helped by court proceedings, nor do Oracle make phones so there’s much to make fools of everyone. Even professors of business innovation.
