Google to Oracle: If Android Violates Copyright, It's Not Our Fault

Mashable's Jolie O'Dell reported today that Google responded to Oracle's copyright violations claim by saying that if it happened, we didn't do it, so it's not our fault.

According to O'Dell, Google said that "if there had been 'any use in the Android platform of any protected elements' of Java, Google itself 'is not liable' due to the fact that such violations would have been committed by third parties and without Google's knowledge."

Oracle is claiming that Android's Dalvik virtual machine violates copyright and patents owned by Oracle since the company purchased Sun Microsystems about a year ago.
