Federal Court Rules Against Google, Company Could Owe Billions

A federal appeals court has ruled that Google violated the copyright of another company by using its open-source code, the ABA Journal reports. The case has wide-reaching implications for software developers over the nature of copyrighting code. The company that sued Google, Oracle, is seeking $8.8 billion in damages. Google may ask the three-judge panel to reconsider its decision, request the case be reviewed en banc, or appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
