SAP to Pay Oracle 1.3 Billion

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

After SAP admittedly stole Oracle software, US Federal Court orders SAP to pay largest amount ever for software piracy in the amount of 1.3 billion.

"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."
