Oligarchs take note.
From Malathi Nayak’s “Trump Backs Supporter Larry Ellison in Court Fight With Google” posted on Bloomberg News Thursday:
The Trump administration urged the U.S. Supreme Court to reject an appeal by Alphabet Inc.’s Google, boosting Oracle Corp.’s bid to collect more than $8 billion in royalties for Google’s use of copyrighted programming code in the Android operating system.
The administration weighed in on the high-stakes case on the same day that President Donald Trump attended a re-election campaign fundraiser in California hosted by Oracle’s co-founder, billionaire Larry Ellison.
My take: Apple, too, has had its share of presidential favors. But without the fundraising bit.
