Although Oracle has suffered a resounding defeat in Google v. Oracle, I cannot help but feel that Oracle's assertion that APIs are copyrightable was a treacherous attempt to destroy all of software development, and therefore the livelihood of programmers all across the world. In other words, Oracle Corporation assaulted the very nature of my chosen profession!
I don't think I am alone in wishing to extend my gratitude to Judge Alsup for taking the time to understand the issues, and ruling against APIs being copyrightable.
Well, considering what Oracle tried to do to us (programmers) I think it only fair that we (programmers) return the favor: Eliminate all products from our lives from which Oracle derives any funds. Simple, effective, and ultimately the only message that Larry Ellison and Oracle will understand. Financial Death to Oracle.
