Oracle alleged that Google had violated both patents and copyrights relating to parts of the Java programming language (which was created at Sun Microsystems prior to its acquisition by Oracle). At the heart of the matter were 11,500 lines of source code, 37 package APIs, and 170 lines of API declarations that Google admits were copied to create its Android operating system. On the copyright issue, Google asserted a defense of fair use of the API.

I did a little googling (actually ducking-ducking-going) and couldn't quickly turn up a reference showing exactly those 170 lines in question.

Anyone else know how to put their finger on them? Or the 11500 lines Oracle alleged?
