German-based software corporation SAP has not been let off the hook for the $328 million in damages and $63 million in interest (for a total of $391 million) owed for infringing on two patents owned by Austin, Texas-based software developer Versata Software.
Versata filed the lawsuit against SAP in 2007.
SAP, in a counter-lawsuit against Versata, filed a motion based on a previous judgment from the United States Patent and Trademark Office that says Versata’s patent claims against SAP are invalid.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Roy Payne was not convinced by SAP’s arguments and rejected SAP’s motion.
