Updatye: Oracle's complaint against Google

The U.S. Patent Office, the United States Patent and Trademark Office has invalidated, on Tuesday, part of the patents relied on by Oracle in a major complaint against Google. Oracle, which publishes such Java after the acquisition of Sun Microsystems, accuses Google of deliberately violated several of its patents in the design of Android, the operating system for mobiles and tablets of the search engine, and is seeking billions of dollars in damages.

After an initial setback in May when a U.S. judge had decided to reduce the number of patents involved in the procedure, Oracle has added a supplement to its complaint to include new patents. But they will not be included in the proceedings until a further validation of the U.S. Patent Office, which has already invalidated 17 of 21 patents submitted by Oracle.
