Oracle Corporation announced Thursday that it is suing Google Inc. saying the Internet-search giant's Android violates Java copyrights. Oracle argues Google’s Android operating system for smartphones infringed the intellectual property of Oracle's Java platform.

The business-software powerhouse claims Google "knowingly, directly and repeatedly" violated Java patent and copyright protection. Spokeswoman Karen Tillman said the company is seeking "appropriate remedies."

Oracle inherited the Java software when it acquired Sun Microsystems for $5.6 billion, which closed earlier this year. Google's popular Android software is a free platform that the company hopes will generate mobile advertising revenue.

Gartner Inc., an information technology research and advisory company, provided new data on Thursday that showed shipments of Android-based devices surged to 10.6 million units in the second quarter, increasing the operating system's market share to 17.2% from 1.8%. Oracle shares rose 0.4%, to $23.03 in after-hours trading, while Google remained unchanged, at $492.75.
