re: Oracle V. Google Jury Deadlocked?
I've been developing software for over 20 years. I regular pass code re-factoring and general project redesigns, but I don't change my APIs, because it is only part of my job which is persisted from version to version. So now you say that the crappy code I regularly dump is copyrightable, but my APIs I develop and spend majority of design time on them are not.
Are you insane there?
