Things just got a lot worse for smartphone manufacturers and carriers who thought they were getting a steal with Android’s low, low $0 sticker price. Florian Mueller’s FOSSpatents blog is running an entry depicting at least 43 instances where Google’s Android source files appear copied straight from Oracle/Sun’s. Google’s already been targeted by Oracle for copyright infringement, but that hasn’t kept the iPhone knock-off OS from being gobbled up by HTC, Motorola and Sony. In addition to Google’s bursting pockets, Oracle’s case to go after these fat cats just got a lot stronger.

Maybe some aspiring Android developer could create a Morning After app?
