Of course, $ 9.3 billion will not attract big loss for Google, but it’s huge money, and we are confident that the search engine giant is ready to part with them. Of course, it’s up to Google and not the court, but the company has the right to challenge the decision, so that even in this case there is no doubt that the company will require a review of the case.

Meanwhile, Google is committed to making every effort to leave Oracle forever. The company recently announced that they plan to move to the OpenJDK – Java alternative to open source – to develop applications on Android, so that Oracle can not claim to future profits. The change will be part of Android N.
