SAP today hit back at a lawsuit filed Thursday by rival Oracle alleging SAP employees stole proprietary Oracle support material online by posing as Oracle customers.

The German software giant is not taking calls, but is waving this statement in the air: "SAP will not comment other than to make it clear to our customers, prospects, investors, employees and partners that SAP will aggressively defend against the claims made by Oracle in the lawsuit. SAP will remain focused on delivering products and services - including those from TomorrowNow - that ensure success for our customers."

The lawsuit implicates Tomorrow Now, a Texas-based SAP subsidiary of making more than 10,000 unauthorized downloads of documents related to Oracle programs. ®
