"Last week, the Solicitor General of the White House weighed in on
Google's request for the Supreme Court to overturn the Federal Circuit's
ridiculously confused ruling in the Oracle/Google case concerning the
copyrightability of APIs (and whether or not repurposing them is fair
use). Not surprisingly, as the Solicitor General has been siding with
Oracle all along, it suggests that the Supreme Court not hear the case.
Of course, it does so by completely misrepresenting what's at stake in
the case -- pretending that this is about whether or not software source
code is copyright-eligible"
Boycott Oracle. Postgresql is an exellent free alternative.
