Oracle, SAP in court battle over software maintenance and IP ‘theft’

SAP and Oracle (and you - yes, you HP)  - can't you boys just play nicely?

If you've been following - or struggling to follow - the court case in which Oracle are suing the pants off SAP for copyright infringement, then this from PC World is an excellent background to the whole thing.

They're in court as we speak, and the only thing we can be sure of is that lawyers are getting more and more wealthy by the minute.

Even HP have been drawn into it, with the ramifications from Mark Hurd's departure from HP and employment by Oracle still rumbling on. All entertaining stuff; but not particularly good news you would think for any of the firms' customers, given the management distraction apart from anything else.
