Little Progress Reported in Google-Oracle Patent Talks

Google Inc. and Oracle Corp. chief executive officers made little headway in negotiations aimed at resolving a lawsuit accusing the Web-search company of patent infringement, a person briefed on the talks said. The two sides, scheduled to meet again in federal court in San Jose, California, remained at loggerheads after the daylong session and were unlikely to reach a settlement soon, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the discussions are private.
