“You do know that Google never got a license from Sun, right?” Boies asked at one point.
“I know we worked hard to negotiate a business license with Java,” Page said.
At that point, Judge Alsup broke in. “That’s a yes or no question,” he said. “Is it true that you never got a license?”
“I’m not sure whether we ever got a license,” Page said.
Shortly afterwards, Boies asked again: “Did Google ever get a license from Sun, or from Oracle, for Java?”
“I don’t think that we did, no.”
“Can you name a single company that uses Java APIs that has not taken a license from Sun or Oracle, except for Google?” asked Boies.
“I’m not an expert on that and I don’t know.”
