Microsoft convinced Oracle to settle down the cause with Google using
the escamotage based on the unilateral author right of extending the
definition of fair use which is the same I did for marketing about a
single file in one of my projects. This escamotage written down and
deposited in the Supreme Court as agreement between the two parties
allows everyone to do the same of Google about Oracle's API. Thus
Oracle surrendered not because Google leveraged the fair use but
because of Microsoft pressure.

Google: I can include the header, thus I can use the API

Oracle: no you cannot.

Microsoft: Oracle DB cannot run without an operative system, do you agree?
