    i never have heard of Google copying anything! this is a shocker.. although they have been growing so much they were bound to hire a bad coder.

      There’s an updated link in this post from ArsTechnica. Apparently even though they copied some files, those files were only used in test units, which don’t actually ship with the Android OS, and some of them were related to a proprietary audio driver that was only used on one handset, I believe. So google wasn’t 100% in the wrong.
