Oracle, Google trial will likely be postponed A U.S. judge has noted today that the multi-billion dollar Oracle, Google patent trial will "likely be postponed" well beyond its expected October 31st start date.
Oracle sued Google last year claiming that the search giant's Android operating system infringes on Oracle's Java patents that were acquired from Sun Microsystems in early 2010.

Additionally, Oracle also brought forth copyright infringement claims and is seeking $6 billion in damages.

U.S. District Judge William Alsup said the trial is expected to be postponed, but only because of an unrelated criminal trial that us taking place at the same time.

Google wants the entire case put on hold, indefinitely.
