Oracle and Google continued legal wrangling on Wednesday in a dimming effort to reach a deal to avoid facing off before jurors in a patent case trial.
The trial remained set to start next month in a San Francisco federal court after Oracle spurned a proposal that Google pay $3 million in damages and potentially cut the company in for less than percent of Android revenue.
Oracle is accusing Google’s Android software of infringingon Java computer programming language patents held by Oracle stemming from its recent purchase of Java inventor Sun Microsystems.
Google has denied the patent infringement claims and said it believes mobile phone makers and other users of its open-source Android operating system are entitled to use the Java technology in dispute.
Google-backed Android software is used in an array of devices that have been gaining ground in the hotly competitive global smartphone and tablet market.
