Why Oracle will win its Java copyright case – and why you'll be glad when it does


" The best that can then come out of it is that Oracle will find themselves in as much trouble as anyone else. If APIs are covered by copyright and use is subject to licence than that extends to the APIs on all GPLed code Oracle use. Oracle would then need to abide by the GPL and provide, under GPL, the source to any currently proprietory code which calls GPLed code. The penalty for not doing so would be revocation of the licence to use that GPLed code."


Any non GLP compliant Interface should be privative. Internal Use. Back Flush S#!t happens. Just wait and see.

Rest my case, by now. On Doctor Syntax Argumentation.
