In the year 2021, for the field of Intellectual Property Rights [IPR], the decision by the Supreme Court of the United States [SCOTUS] in the tussle between Google and Oracle, two of the most growing businesses in the world became very important. The reason why this judgment was long awaited by software industries and scholars of IPR is that the doctrine of fair use was being discussed and adjudicated upon in the instant case. The case comment will thus analyse the judgment, the arguments thereon as well and the analysis and way forward for the world.
