The last time we updated you about the Android IP Trial which is basically a legal tussle between Google and Oracle, it seemed that Oracle hadn’t gained much from the case. It was awarded only statutory damages for the infringement which the court ruled Google did commit. But statutory damages are too tiny a sum to make any difference to Oracle. Naturally, the company wanted to go after a share in Android’s profits.


A share in Android’s profits was touted as ‘ridiculous’ by the judge overlooking the trial. In the latest session of the trial, Google and Oracle counsel were seen discussing the matter amid themselves. This fundamentally shows that Oracle and Google, both want to wrap up the case now. And although there is yet another phase of the case left, neither party seems any longer interested in fully pursuing it.

Rather, perhaps both companies are now planning to reach an agreement of their own. Oracle earlier stated that it wasn’t ready to accept statutory damages. Later, though, Oracle’s own attorneys stated that he had reached an agreement with his counterpart, Google’s counsel, and that he wished the part mentioning damages phase to be dropped.

Oracle’s attorney further stated, “”The court may say that given the relative contribution of these items there is an inability for us to seek infringer’s profits.” Towards the end of the session, judge asked both parties to present a signed agreement which shows how both companies planned to go forward with the case.

While the case is still on and there is still another phase left, it seems that neither of the two companies consider it important any more and may, most probably, reach a mutual agreement on their own.
