Hi Rita,

The Oracle ODF Plugin for Microsoft Office was a Sun (later Oracle)
product.  It enabled ODF read/write support on Office 2003.  (Office
2007 SP2 and Office 2010 support ODF natively)

This Plugin was not open source and was not part of the
product.  It is not part of the Apache OpenOffice project either.

You would need to check with Oracle on the licensing and pricing questions.
