Oracle said late Thursday that it had filed a patent and copyright infringement suit against Google. The lawsuit has been reported in a number of media outlets, including Infoworld, Forbes, LA Times, WSJ (one, two) and ElReg. Copy of the filed lawsuit is available from Scribd. Additional (geeky) lawyer news from Law.Com.
Not suprisingly, the lawsuit generated many reactions in blogs, tweets, bulleting boards and other public fora. As of this writing, many of them can be explored with a Twitter Search: "Oracle Google". Posts include those of Sacha, James, Steven O'Grady, Chris Wong, Venera7.
