Unfortunately, Larry, competition is a crime in the good ol' US of A.Google Inc. Chief Executive Officer Larry Page, disputing claims that the leading search engine operator stole Java software technology from Oracle Corp. (ORCL), told a jury his company “did nothing wrong.”
Page, the first witness today to be called by Oracle attorney David Boies at a trial in federal court in San Francisco, said Google negotiated hard over a partnership with Sun Microsystems Inc., the creator of the Java programming language acquired by Oracle in 2010.
“We really wanted to be able to use Sun’s technology,” Page testified. “When we weren’t able to come to terms on a business partnership, we went down our own path.”
