Companies buy other companies to capitalize on what they do every day. There's nothing wrong with that. Google bought Motorola to capitalize on what they had, whether it was their patents or they actually plan on going into the handset business. I don't know enough about the technical stuff to know if Google infringed on Java or not, but if they did, they should have licensed it like everyone else. It's pretty arrogant if they just said "screw it, we're just using your code and we're not paying you squat. Good luck in court."
