Why I won’t use Java

Oracle America (the subsidiary of Oracle that used to be called Sun Microsystems) is suing Google over patents and copyrights. The copyrights Oracle is using? The API specification.

So this basically means any Java class that subclasses an abstract Java class or implements a Java interface is potentially on the hook for violating Oracle’s copyrights if they don’t like you.
