Oracle (ORCL) is raising the stakes in its battle with Google (GOOGL) over Android. The fight between the two companies goes back to 2010, when Oracle first accused Google of copying parts of its operating system. Now, Oracle is raising the stakes as it looks to expand the ongoing copyright lawsuit to cover newer Android versions. Oracle alleges that Google's Android copies source code from its Java platform. In its proposed complaint, Oracle wants to include 40 major and minor Android releases comprised of six versions, saying they represent an ongoing infringement of copyright. Oracle has argued that the infringement has hurt the Java platform. Google on the other hand, says its use of the application program interfaces, or APIs, in question falls under the doctrine of fair use. TheStreet's Kurumi Fukushima reports in New York.
