The case goes back to 2007 when Oracle sued its rival for allowing its TomorrowNow division to download code which it then went onto a court case where it looked for damages and in November 2010 a jury awarded the vendor $1.3bn in damages.
That figure was based on a combination of factors, including lost profits, and was open to challenge and SAP was successful in getting it trimmed down to $272m.
But Oracle rejected that figure and revealed that it is now seeking $777m at the court case that starts next month.
It wants included with the list of factors to be considered not just lost profits and benefits to SAP for using the code but also hypothethical license damages.
