Oracle, which purchased Sun recently, was very interested in buying the rights to the Java language. So now they are defending their purchased rights by suing Boogle:

A number of Linux and BSD developers have been skeptial about the mono project, which provides a platform for development using Microsoft's C++ language, but people haven't worried a lot about Java, almost forgetting that it belonged to Sun, its corporate creator.

Now it's time to worry.
