SAP Pays $306 Million To Settle Oracle Download Lawsuit

SAP agreed to pay Oracle $306 million in damages to settle a seven-year-old copyright infringement lawsuit.

But Oracle isn't giving up its appeal to have a jury's $1.3 billion award in the case reinstated, meaning that the bitter dispute will continue.

SAP had sought an entirely new trial in the case. By agreeing to pay the $306 million, SAP is dropping that effort, clearing the way for the case to move on to Oracle's appeal.
