SAP hit with record copyright infringement fine

Text size Aa Aa

A jury in California has stunned top European software editor SAP, fining it after a long-running case for software theft from Oracle.

The decision drew gasps from a packed courtroom in Oakland, as SAP will be fined over 970 million euros, in what may be the largest-ever penalty for copyright infringement.

The fine is more than 20 times bigger than SAP’s damages estimate, and slightly less than Oracle’s claim.
