Fear the SAP-slap? Users can anonymously submit questions about licensing naughtiness


Re: Who owns the data ?

Well sure, but SAP seems to be attempting to say something like "Because the number 1 was stored in a SAP system for a time, you need to license all the 1s with which you interact". How many steps do you have to be away from SAP before exhaustion? Infinite.

Actually, I'm surprised they haven't attempted to charge/sue indirect users who have deliberately or inadvertently redistributed "SAP licensed" data (e.g. by sharing invoices that were generated in SAP or something similar). Stupid, ridiculous, and malicious, but when has that ever stopped them?
