Much has been made over the litigation between Oracle and Google. Is it about Java? Is it about open source software (OSS)? Is it about compatibility? JavaFX? JavaME? Well, not really. It's about the patents, and to a lesser extent, copyright.

Here's a key article over at TheServerSide.com that demystifies the Oracle vs. Google lawsuit, and puts the patent litigation into perspective. Are these patents valid? Are they novel and non-obvoius? You be the judge.

There's also a good article or two on the copyright infringement claims that Oracle is making as well.
