Oracles Corporation wins US$ 1.3 billion jury verdit against SAP AG
24-Nov-2010 / ( Business - Previous | Next | Last )

Jury verdict in case against SAP goes in favour of Oracle. SAP AG has been asked to pay US$ 1.3 billion for copyright infringement by TomorrowNow.

Oracle had filed a suit aginst Germany based SAP in 2007 charging its US-based subsidiary of illegally downloading and making copies of Oracle software. Oracle had claimed that the company had avoided paying the licensing fees and stolen from customers.

SAP has reacted to the judgement expressing dissappointment. It has said that SAP will explore all available options and appeal if necessary.

Oracle issued the following statement, attributable to Oracle President Safra Catz "For more than three years, SAP stole thousands of copies of Oracle software and then resold that software and related services to Oracle's own customers. Right before the trial began, SAP admitted its guilt and liability; then the trial made it clear that SAPs most senior executives were aware of the illegal activity from the very beginning. As a result, a United States Federal Court has ordered SAP to pay Oracle $1.3 billion. This is the largest amount ever awarded for software piracy."
