Oracle after taking swipes at its main competitor SAP at all its forums, has taken the battle to a new level. It has accused SAP of corporate theft on a grand scale. The news item from Reuters is here.
It has filed for damages and injunctive relief at the court and the charges that it has brought against SAP include:
SAP has engaged in systematic and ilegal access to Oracle’s customer support systems. Through this scheme, SAP has stolen thousands of proprieted, copyrighted software products and other confidential materials that Oracle developed to service its own support customers.
SAP has gained access to Oracle’s proprietary, password-protected customer support website for its PeopleSoft and JDE product lines..
SAP employees using the log-in credentials of Oracle customers accessed and copied thousands of individual software and support materials.
The detailed documents can be accessed here.
It would be interesting to see how the court room battle evolves– will it be protracted or settled out of court quickly.
