Oracle still capable... of being a dick...

Apparently the only way Oracle can make money off the Android operating system is the traditional one: via lawyers.

Rumored to be bringing suit against Google for inappropriately modifying an open-source version of Java, Oracle claims that Google has violated it's copyrights.

Oracle spokeswoman Karen Tillman says "In developing Android, Google knowingly, directly and repeatedly infringed Oracle's Java-related intellectual property. This lawsuit seeks appropriate remedies for their infringement."

One translation: "Our company is no longer valid, and so we must bring suit against other companies to provide income while Larry buys a few more boats."

Of course that's only one translation.  There are likely others.
