Chief Executive of SAP Unit Rebukes Oracle Lawsuit - WSJ

The chief executive of SAP's TomorrowNow subsidiary, Andrew Nelson, defended the unit's business practices in his first public response to a recent lawsuit from rival Oracle, The Wall Street Journal reported.

"We believe we've done absolutely nothing wrong, and we're going to defend our position vigorously," the newspaper quoted Nelson as saying. "We believe our model is an appropriate and legal way to do business."

Oracle claims SAP engaged in "corporate theft on a grand scale" in a series of "high-tech raids," alleging people associated with TomorrowNow illegally accessed and downloaded large quantities of software and confidential information from Oracle's technical-support system.
