Oracle wants more than the $306 million promised in SAP lawsuit

In early August, SAP agreed to pay Oracle $306 million following a trial that found SAP guilty of copyright infringement. The jury verdict reached in 2010 determined that Oracle should receive $1.3 billion in damages.
But last September, U.S. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton deemed that amount excessive and gave Oracle a choice of accepting $272 million in damages or requesting a new trial.
The case harkens back to 2007 when Oracle sued SAP over accusations that SAP's TomorrowNow subsidiary wrongfully downloaded millions of Oracle files and documents. SAP admitted the violation from the start, but the two companies have been battling over the amount of damages owed to Oracle.
