SAP seeks to limit 'media circus' in Oracle lawsuit

In a move to speed up trial that starts Monday, SAP says it it won't contest allegations that it contributed to copyright infringement via now defunct unit TomorrowNow.

SAP is altering its tactics in the Oracle-TomorrowNow lawsuit in a move to speed up the trial, which starts Monday, and prevent Larry Ellison & Co. from orchestrating "a media circus" designed to "use weeks of trial to harass its competitors, whether they are party to the case or not."

It's pretty clear that Oracle is issuing statements (here, here, and here) to take aim at Hewlett-Packard CEO Leo Apotheker, formerly CEO of SAP.

To head off Oracle's bluster, SAP said in a letter it won't contest allegations that it contributed to copyright infringement via its now defunct third-party support unit TomorrowNow (Techmeme). Before this move, SAP accepted liability for TomorrowNow, but contested whether it knew of what was going on at its unit.
