Google and Oracle will settle their dispute in May

It seems that, despite the lengthy meeting to resolve the ongoing lawsuit between Google and Oracle for the use of a specific part of Oracle software in Android, the two companies failed to reach an agreement in the field of copyright lawsuit.

Google and Oracle will settle their dispute in May



General Director of Google, Sundar Pichai and general director of Oracle, Safra Catz, along with other leaders from both companies met on Friday to try to reach an agreement and settle a lawsuit that was filed by Oracle in 2012.

Google strongly disagree with the fact that they are required to pay Oracle more than $ 8 billion for copyright infringement when using certain parts of Oracle programming language, Java, in Android.

Since the company could not reach an agreement, the next phase of hearings will be held in May, where the jury will decide whether or not Google the right to use certain parts of Java in Android for free or Google have to pay Oracle for this opportunity.

Of course, it is difficult to say whether the court the most appropriate way to reach an agreement between the two software companies, however, given that the companies are not going to agree, it is the only way.
