Jury Issues Mixed Verdict in Google-Oracle Android Case

A jury said Google Inc., the largest Web-search provider, infringed copyrights for Oracle Corp.’s technology in developing Android software running on more than 300 million mobile devices, while jurors couldn’t decide unanimously whether Google made “fair use” of the intellectual property. The decision came in the copyright phase of an eight-week intellectual-property trial that began April 16 and next will shift to Oracle’s claims of patent infringement.
