||Last Updated: 09/05/2007

Software company SAP has admitted one of its subsidiaries, TomorrowNow, made “inappropriate downloads” from the website of its rival Oracle. However, SAP says it never had access to Oracle intellectual property through TomorrowNow, a third-party maintenance provider.

Oracle filed a lawsuit against Waldorf, Germany-based SAP, its SAP America subsidiary and TomorrowNow in March. The suit accuses TomorrowNow employees of posing as Oracle customers to access Oracle’s customer-support systems and stealing and using Oracle products to get Oracle customers to convert to SAP.
