Oracle got what it deserved

19 Jun 2012

A victory for common sense, but what an immense waste of court time – the American state and taxpayer is footing a huge wage bill to flatter corporate arrogance (Jury rejects Oracle patent-infringement claims against Google).

I bet the lawyers knew this wasn’t going to work from the off but saw no reason not to trouser the cash that Ellison’s titanic ego was desperate to burn.

I believe that in cases like this, where it appears, ultimately, to be open and shut, firms found to be wasting court time should face stiff penalties to deter a culture of corporate bullying.
