Supreme Court May Have Opened The Door To Software Clean Rooms


Friday, December 6, 2019, at 15:57.

Good news for those who advocate for interoperable and fungible software: clean room solutions may be attractive again. By jettisoning an appellate court's decision, the Supreme Court returned to the policy that "copyright law didn't control the use of application programming interfaces (APIs)—standard function calls that allow third parties to build software compatible with an established platform like Java." Hence Google is allowed to create its own Java software with existing APIs for interoperability without infringing on Oracle's rights.
