This panel of business and legal experts will examine the implications of Oracle v. Google for current online and software technologies and business models, including whether it represents a major shift in copyright law. The panelists will discuss whether the Federal Circuit effectively expanded what may be owned in software or related technologies, including in areas critical to interoperability and compatibility among the products of different companies; whether the decision represents a significant shift in the copyright rules applicable to copying and the use of interfaces; the potential role of fair use, waiver and licensing principles; the extent to which the decision contradicts the Supreme Court’s 4-4 split decision in Lotus v. Borland; and how companies might guide their future actions.
