Rimini Street: Dispute with Oracle is contract law, not copyright


Car analogy

OK, I'll pull out the traditional car analogy.

A car rental company leases a car for a week with the provision that it can only be used with one passenger. The renter uses it with three different passengers in sequence. The car rental company claims that is car theft, and wants the car back immediately, damages plus jail time. The renter claims that it is, at most, a contract dispute.
