Oracle has amended its theft lawsuit against SAP to include claims of infringed copyrights and breached contracts.

In March, the database giant sued Texas-based SAP subsidiary Tomorrow Now, alleging the firm had illegally copied thousands of its customer support documents from a password-protected website.

But it has now issued an amendment to its original complaint saying SAP had "compiled an illegal library of Oracle's copyrighted software code and other materials".

The allegation centres on Oracle's Peoplesoft, Siebel, and JDE Edwards range of database products.

In a statement released on Friday, the firm said: "Oracle alleges that SAP engaged in a deliberate, systematic and illegal scheme to access, copy, use, and distribute Oracle's copyrighted software products and related materials, in violation of federal and state law.

"The suit seeks to stop SAP's unauthorised and illegal activity and prevent future violations and to recover damages related to the violations."

SAP, which has until 2 July to respond to the complaint, said it will defend itself against the charges.
