SAP asks for mediator in Oracle row

German business software giant SAP has called for a mediated and speedy
resolution to the lawsuit brought against it by rival Oracle for corporate

Oracle, which claims that SAP collated its rival’s software illegally through
downloads, said the pulling together of data and documents would take at least
18 months.

SAP has called for a mediator to help the parties reach a settlement or
manage Oracle’s claim, reported Reuters.

Oracle said SAP’s proposal was an attempt to limit the investigation.

SAP has admitted that subsidiary TomorrowNow downloaded Oracle
customer-support documents, but denies Oracle’s claim that it put the documents
into a library of stolen material.
