Frankfurt: A U.S. federal court has ordered Europe's biggest software maker, SAP AG, to pay $138.6 million to Versata Software Inc for violating the American group's patents, SAP said Thursday.

"SAP is reviewing the decision and is considering further steps," said a spokesman for the German-based SAP.

An appeal is possible, said the SAP spokesman, which is also the world's biggest maker of business-management software. Versata Software launched the legal action in 2007.
