Techdirt Podcast Episode 295: What Oracle/Google Means For Copyright And Interoperability

from the implications dept

We've written a lot about the Oracle/Google case over API copyrights as it wound its way through the courts, but the Supreme Court ruling has such widespread implications that there is still plenty to unpack. This week, we're joined by two top experts on intellectual property — Berkeley Law's Pamela Samuelson and Stanford Law's Mark Lemley, who recently co-wrote a paper on the subject — to discuss in detail what impact this landmark case has on copyright and interoperability.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

    Ouch

    Am I the only one that finds it hard to listen to the frequent "and, um, uh" from Pamela?

    I apologize if that sounds mean, I really don't mean it that way.

    I just found it jarring in content that I was really interested in otherwise.

    The first stage of the trial concerned Oracle's claim to copyright in Java APIs and whether Google infringed those copyrights. Important open questions remain, including whether the copyright facts are true and how the judge will decide whether Google used the APIs fairly, which we believe was the case. Over the past decade, Google has argued in lower courts that it did not infringe on copyright when re-implemented Java for use on Android. Students can choose their own deadlines and choose their preferred https://essayservices.org/.
