Google (GOOG) and Oracle (ORCL) have both filed paperwork to appeal the court’s ruling from the high-profile legal trial that took place between the two companies earlier this year. Google is appealing the jury’s findings that its Android operating system infringed Oracle’s copyrights concerning the Java programing language, while Oracle plans to appeal the findings that Google did not infringe the company’s patents, Bloomberg reports. In an earlier filing, Google’s lawyer revealed the jury found that the Internet giant had infringed upon “just nine out of millions of lines of code” in the Java programming language, which the company believes is legally insignificant. Both appeals will be filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington.
