(Our speaker has supplied the following regarding his talk)

   One of the most important legal decisions that directly affects
  the lives of software developers was decided a few weeks ago.
  The widely followed case between Oracle and Google involving the
  Android operating system has now been decided on appeal, in a way
  that may be troubling to many in the software development field.

  Paul Arne is the senior partner in the Technology Transactions
  Practice Group at Morris, Manning & Martin.  He will lead the
  presentation of a number of attorneys in his group to discuss
  this important legal development.  Joining Paul will be Austin
  Mills, Ryan Kelly, and Patrick McKenzie, who will discuss various
  aspects of this legal decision and its implications for using
  APIs and other interfaces.
Prior to the meeting, there will be an informal, non-structured
"guru" session open to anyone wishing to attend.  This will start
around 6:45pm in the meeting room, and we will have one or more gu-
rus available to discuss whatever topics/problems/questions the at-
tendees care to bring up.
E-mail facilities have been graciously provided by Dragon Networks,
