As of this writing, the Google v. Oracle America case is yet to be heard by the Supreme Court. Assuming that Oracle wins the case, if Google was to drop support for the contested APIs on the Android platform, would that result in less damages or other negative legal consequences either immediately or over the long term?
I notice that Google has started developing a different OS called Fuschia which can run on mobile devices, which would not infringe patented APIs. I also notice Google has started supporting a different programming language called Kotlin on Android alongside Java, even to the point of calling it "Google's preferred language for Android app development". It's worth noting that Java APIs, including the contested ones are easily accessible from Kotlin by default.
I'm wondering if, given Oracle wins, the legal consequences for Google would be materially different if Google was to suddenly drop support for the contested APIs on Android, (possibly by providing non infringing alternatives), while continuing to support, develop, and otherwise continue with the above projects.
(I'll mention here that this is an attempt to rework this closed question to be on-topic.)
