Recent articles have shown that Oracle may have won, but they were awarded a paltry $150K in damages. (bwa-hahahaha). That’s actually a great precedent the judge set in that, yes, your intellectual property was copied but no, that intellectual property was relatively worthless if not obvious. I think the judge’s quote was something to the effect of their “9 lines of code are not worth billions in damages”.
If such a case can be used in the future as precedent, it may very well diminish the patent trolling over features that are inherently obvious and not necessarily the work of vision or complexity.
