A lot of the discussion here has (and I accept my share of the blame) digressed into other open source patent matters, especially IBM vs. TurboHercules. But back to the actual Oracle vs. Google topic, I just published this analysis of licensing issues. In particular, that posting talks about a possible concern on Oracle's part about Google "hijacking" Java, and about the question of whether Google would have been safer by forking the OpenJDK under the GPL.
