Google Head Eric Schmidt’s Rejoinder to Oracle CEO Larry Ellison’s Claims

The CEO of Oracle, Larry Ellison brought some pretty serious allegations against Google earlier this month. Among these were claims of the search engine being absolutely evil and pilfering Oracle’s tools. The usage of Java in the context of Android was cited as proof of this. The company known as Oracle had once been engaged in a struggle with Google in the court of law. But it lost the $6 million case badly. However, after the latest mudslinging by Larry Ellison, Google’s chairman decided enough was enough and responded. Eric Schmidt has said that all such claims by Ellison were untrue and that the law was on his side. 

Schmidt’s only defense was that you can’t imprison information. That an idea cannot be the exclusive property of one person or institution was obvious. After all, behind creativity lies cooperation. Nobody has an exclusive monopoly over the wisdom of mankind which is preserved in culture and other institutions such as science, technology, religion and art. We all borrow some things from others and the only true art lies in hiding our sources. If you have a patent you may lay claim to being the sole owner of its copyright code. But when it comes to the airy fairy world of intellectual property, things are a lot more fluid and one man’s creation can inspire a million other spin offs by countless others. Schmidt may be right. Originality is a myth, although a very stable myth.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
