itwbennett writes “On Wednesday, Oracle amended the lawsuit it filed against Google in August, saying that ‘approximately one third of Android’s Application Programmer Interface (API) packages’ are ‘derivative of Oracle’s copyrighted Java API packages’ and related documents. In particular, ‘the infringed elements of Oracle America’s copyrighted work include Java method and class names, definitions, organization, and parameters; the structure, organization and content of Java class libraries; and the content and organization of Java’s documentation,’ Oracle says. ‘In at least several instances, Android computer program code also was directly copied from copyrighted Oracle America code,’ Oracle alleges.”
