Oracle America, Inc. v. Google Inc.: Jury Finds in Favor of Edgeworth Client
Jun 6, 2016
On May 26, 2016, a jury found that Google’s use the declaring code and structure, sequence, and organization of 37 Java application programming interfaces (APIs) in Google’s mobile operating system Android constituted lawful “fair use.” The closely watched case had been brought by Oracle against Google, with Oracle claiming that Google had infringed Oracle copyrights.
An Edgeworth Economics team, made up of Dr. Gregory Leonard, Stephen Rusek, Dr. Qian Lu, Marine Sargsyan, and Michael DeLaPaz, consulted on behalf of Google. Dr. Leonard testified at trial concerning economic analysis which demonstrated that Google’s use of the copyrighted material was “transformative” and did not cause market harm to the copyrighted work and its derivatives.
