oracle vs google

Oracle vs Google, Oracle’s lawyers have made their final pitch to paint Google as a copyright outlaw, and the decision is now up to a 10-person jury. The jurors have been cloistered in a room on the 19th floor of the federal courthouse in San Francisco, and ended their second full day of deliberations this afternoon. They’ll return to court Thursday to continue their discussion. If Google loses, a separate damages phase will immediately follow.
During a 90-minute closing argument on Monday, Oracle attorney Peter Bicks said every fair use factor weighed in Oracle’s favor and that Google’s behavior showed “bad faith.” Above are some of the slides Bicks showed jurors during his closing argument.

We also asked Google for some of the slides it showed to the jury, but Google declined to provide them. (These in-court visuals aren’t evidence, according to the rules of the court, so it’s up to the parties as to whether or not to show them outside court.)

In all, Oracle prepared more than 150 slides to show the jury during closing arguments. For those wanting to see all the slides, here’s the first half and second half, in PDF format.
