Oracle Ordered to Pay $16.5 Million in Interest to SAP

Oracle Corp. must be paid interest on the $1.3 billion copyright-infringement jury verdict it won against SAP AG, a federal judge said. SAP, based in Walldorf, Germany, said the interest amounts to about $16.5 million based on the calculation method ordered yesterday by U.S. District Judge Phyllis J. Hamilton in Oakland, California, who presided over the trial of the 2007 lawsuit.
