yeah I fear I have to side with Google *cough* and Microsoft *cough* on this one, because I can see the tea leaves being VERY VERY BAD if Oracle gets their way in this...
every API could suddenly become PROPRIETARY!!! Writing a competing product would THEN be IMPOSSIBLE... and say goodbye to Wine, and other open source alternatives to commercial products, maybe even Open and/or Libre office.
And THAT would be COMPLETELY *FELT* ('feel' being the OTHER 'F' word)!
(only the lawyers win when all of this CRAP happens)
