Submission + - Oracle says Google directly copied Java code (zdnet.com)

suraj.sun writes: Oracle says Google directly copied Java code: Here's the line-by-line comparison

Oracle amended its Java complaint against Google over Android patent infringement and provided line-by-line comparisons in its exhibits.

In its tweaked complaint, Oracle ups the ante against Google, who has called the lawsuit baseless. Oracle, which first sued Google over Android in August, said:

        In at least several instances, Android computer program code also was directly copied from copyrighted Oracle America code. For example, as may be readily seen in Exhibit J, the source code in Android’s “PolicyNodeImpl.java” class is nearly identical to “PolicyNodeImpl.java” in Oracle America’s Java, not just in name, but in the source code on a line-for-line basis.

Indeed, if you look at those exhibits the lines of code are identical: http://i.zdnet.com/blogs/orclcode.png

The amended complaint and Oracle’s key exhibits are embedded below via Scribd. Judge for yourself.
