New Delhi: In what could be called as a major blow to Oracle, search engine giant Google has won a major US court battle with the software firm.

The jury upheld claims by Google and the decision was made in their favour in a long-running copyright fight over Android software used to run most of the world's smartphones.

The claims made by Google were pronounced fair, thus bringing the trial to a close without Oracle winning any of the $9 billion (roughly Rs. 60,350 crores) in damages it requested.

 

Oracle had argued that Google had infringed its copyright and had sought nearly $9bn (£6bn) in damages.

Google uses Java in its Android smartphone operating system which powers about 80% of the world's mobile devices.
