"Over the last decade or so, the fight between Oracle and Google has seemed
incredibly personal -- at least on the Oracle side. Of course, many have argued
the main reason for Oracle's attacks on Google were to pressure the company
into settling its long-running fight over the Java API -- and the Supreme Court
just put an end to that -- so it will be interesting to watch whether or not
the attacks continue. But there's an important point buried in all of this.
Almost everything Oracle accuses Google of doing... it does itself. Often in
much more nefarious ways. I mean, Oracle even copied an API without a license.
But Oracle's grand projection in blaming Google for the things that Oracle
actually does (in much worse ways) goes way further than that."
