SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Business software maker Oracle Corp. is asking a federal appeals court to reinstate a $1.3 billion jury verdict against SAP for copyright infringement.

A trial judge in 2011 called the award excessive and reduced it by about $1 billion, prompting Oracle to take its case to the 9th U.S Circuit Court of Appeals. A three-judge panel of the appeals court will hear arguments in San Francisco on Tuesday.

The 7-year-old legal battle revolves around SAP's $10 million acquisition of a small software services firm TomorrowNow that had promised to help corporate customers and government agencies maintain the applications that they had purchased from Oracle. SAP conceded that TomorrowNow employees used Oracle software without the Redwood City company's permission. SAP is arguing against reinstating the jury's verdict.
