SAP admits Oracle charges

SAP last night said it pleaded guilty to unspecified charges in a criminal case involving unauthorised access to computers maintained by software rival Oracle. The US Department of Justice prosecutors yesterday charged SAP's defunct TomorrowNow Inc unit with 11 counts of unauthorised access to an Oracle computer, and one count of criminal copyright infringement, according to a court filing yesterday. “With the agreement we now look forward to what we think is a fair and final resolution of the matter,” said a spokesperson for SAP yesterday.
