SAP's decision to challenge the $1.3bn fine that was handed out in it's intellectual property infringement case against Oracle last year has been vindicated with $1bn slashed off what it must now pay it's arch rival.The German business intelligence specialist will now only pay $20m (£13m) to Oracle after wrapping up a two week review of it's case.At the start of this month a US District Court Judge started to review the case making it clear she felt the original fine had been set too high.Her judgement has been accepted by SAP but according to reports Oracle is planning to appeal against the decision looking for more damages.
