NEC Corporation of America owes Oracle $ 7 million for alleged breach of contract related to a biometric law enforcement system, Law360 reports.
Third-party companies on Oracle PartnerNetwork are permitted to copy the Oracle database and distribute it to their customers as long as they enter into a distribution agreement with Oracle, according to the complaint.
Oracle alleges that NEC America both distributed the Oracle database outside of such an agreement and failed to report certain distributions to Oracle.
Under its agreement as a member of Oracle PartnerNetwork, NEC America was audited by Oracle in late 2019, which disclosed unauthorized distributions of the database and associated programs with its Integra-ID 5 biometric application to users. police, said the complainant.
Integra-ID is a multimodal biometric identification system.
Oracle says it informed NEC America of the audit results in October, asking for payment for additional licenses, and then when a prohibited deadline expired in January, the unresolved audit dispute amounted to a breach of contract. A communication in March informed NEC America that it was being kicked out of Oracle PartnerNetwork and that other agreements were being terminated.
