Oracle asks for its pound of flesh in unique SAP theft case

Author: NeivesSporleder591 | Filed under: About

Oracle has asked an appeals court to reinstate a US$1.3 billion jury award against SAP for what an Oracle lawyer on Tuesday called “the most massive and brazen copyright infringement in history.” A District Court judge overturned Oracle’s award two years ago, calling it “grossly excessive,” and instead granted it damages of $272 million. Oracle appealed, and on Tuesday lawyers for each side presented their cases to a three-judge panel at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. The case concerns a long-closed SAP subsidiary called TomorrowNow, which Oracle caught downloading masses of software and support materials—around 5 terabytes—from an Oracle-PeopleSoft website.
